Medical residents training to be OB-GYNs in Texas don't have many places where they can learn how to perform abortions.

With the overturn of Roe v Wade, how will OB-GYNs have to change the way they provide for patients?

This hour on Where We Live, we host a roundtable of OB-GYNs, and hear what their expectations and fears are about providing care in a post-Roe world.

We hear from Dr. Amanda Kallen, Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Yale School of Medicine, specializing in reproductive endocrinology and infertility.

She is joined by Dr. Kate Pascucci, a physician specializing in obstetrics and gynecology at Connecticut Women’s OB/GYN.

We’ll also hear from Dr. Jessian Munoz who practices in Texas, and Dr. Beverly Gray, who practices in North Carolina.

What questions do you have about the future of OB-GYN care post-Roe?

  • Dr. Amanda Kallen - Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Yale School of Medicine
