Joy, Partner, Joy & Young LLP, and Dr. Sangeeta Sakaria, Medical Director, Emergency Department, UC Irvine, discuss some of the recent changes and updates they have seen in the reproductive health care space, particularly at the state level, and how practitioners of emergency medical care are responding.
