- The St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Editorial Board advocated for enhancing the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act to protect the release of women’s health records who have had an abortion. Without Democrats in Congress passing a law to codify Roe v. Wade into law, the Editorial Board claimed strengthening HIPAA was the next best thing so no woman’s medical information could be released without her expressed written consent.
- Technology could now threaten women who seek abortions and the medical providers who perform them, University of North Carolina associate professor Zeynep Tufekci writes in The New York Times. She warned that in the wake of the leaked U.S. Supreme Court draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade, “minimally” regulated digital technology could help law enforcement, or even vigilantes, track down women or abortion clinicians in states that would outlaw the procedure.
