02. Reproductive Justice


Reproductive justice is the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities. To support this right for all people, pharmacists can facilitate access to healthcare services. It is important for pharmacists to show they are here for their community members by valuing their patients and providing services, such as contraceptives. Pharmacists should provide contraceptive access to all patients to the extent possible. Patients will remember the pharmacist who takes the time to help them understand their options and feel agency over their reproductive health. We discuss how reproductive justice differs from reproductive rights. We then discuss the work that is being done to help support the reproductive justice movement and share ways that pharmacists can adopt reproductive justice into their practices.
