Panel: The Intersection of Disability Law and Reproductive Rights

Reproductive rights and disabled rights intersect, more than you might think, and disabled women's rights are often violated through reproductive restrictions. This is caused by a lack of understanding that women with disabilities require the same range of and access to reproductive services, and even subtle eugenicism. What is the law doing to counteract these problems? What can be done?
