Over the course of the Fall 2018 semester, I researched reproductive healthcare on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.
I talked to the university Women’s Health Clinic gynecologist to learn about contraceptive options and sexual health resources, the president of Students for Life of Madison to find out what it meant to be pro-life in a liberal pocket of Wisconsin and the vice-president of the Student Alliance for Reproductive Healthcare to explore Planned Parenthood’s presence and initiatives on campus.
I also spoke with spokespeople from College Democrats of UW-Madison and College Republicans of UW-Madison to learn about the issue of reproductive healthcare and abortion from partisan points of view. I was especially interested in hearing their points of view because, while I was pitching the project to my journalism professor and teaching assistants, then-candidate Brett Kavanaugh was going through the confirmation process to become a Supreme Court justice and solidify a conservative majority on the court for years to come.
