What does privacy Post-Roe look like?
Technology and healthcare have become increasingly intertwined as our society has become more digitized. But as innovations in technology catapult forward, access to basic reproductive rights is threatened. Most notably as of late, by the overturning of the constitutional protections established in the landmark decision of Roe v. Wade by the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision.
How will the current state of digital liberties affect those who can become pregnant, and how will the decision affect the status of privacy laws going forward? Further, how does the current landscape of surveillance and privacy impact the enforcement of state “trigger laws” emerging from the decision, and other rights in danger of being restricted in the future?
Foundry Fellow and TPG Host Reema Moussa sits down with Eva Galperin of the Electronic Frontier Foundation to explore these questions. They dig into privacy post-Roe and cover the current landscape of surveillance technology as it affects those who can become pregnant.
Eva’s work primarily focuses on providing privacy and security for vulnerable populations around the world. More recently, she has worked on addressing the digital privacy and security needs of survivors of domestic abuse. She is also a co-founder of the Coalition Against Stalkerware, and has been an outspoken voice on digital privacy and security issues surrounding reproductive rights.
