Abortion & Reproductive Rights on TV presented by The Syndication Project & Hollywood, Health & Society

This panel will explore how TV can further improve depictions of abortion onscreen, and how by creating awareness and lowering the disparities between fictional representation and real-world statistics, the industry can use its power on and off screen to encourage proactiveness around reproductive health.
