Following the announcement of the Supreme Court overturning Roe V. Wade on June 24, the Cleveland Clinic is taking steps to ensure women have access to reproductive healthcare.
Beginning Saturday, July 23, Cleveland Clinic will offer appointments to women 14 years and older to provide access to contraceptives between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. at select locations.
"Reproductive healthcare decisions are best made between a patient and their healthcare provider," said Tristi Muir, MD, Chair of the Obstetrics, Gynecology & Women's Health Institute at Cleveland Clinic. "It is critical that women and men have immediate access to contraception. As we have seen an increase in the number of vasectomies across the country in the last month, we are working to increase immediate access for women by opening clinics on Saturdays focused on providing contraception."
