The U.S. Supreme Court sent shockwaves with its decision to overturn protections for reproductive rights under Roe v. Wade. In addition to depriving millions of people of a fundamental right, the decision also means that those who seek, offer, or facilitate abortion healthcare must now consider whether law enforcement could access and use previously benign digital data as evidence of a crime. That’s an alarming prospect for an increasingly online world without strong privacy protections.
This panel will explore the future of access to healthcare resources, how technologists are working to help people secure their data now, how policymakers in both the private and public sectors can ensure safety and privacy for millions of people—and what you can do to protect yourself and your communities.
