Regulation of Intimacy

Laws that regulate abortion have played a critical role in sexual and reproductive health. Laws have also played a critical role in the regulation of intimate behavior and relationships, and the regulation of sexual and gender diverse populations. The Center’s work has examined the ways in which these laws have improved, as well as harmed, the health of these communities.
