Meet Dr. DeShawn

From Personal Struggle to Community Empowerment

When the Supreme Court took up the Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization case (the 15-week abortion ban) I thought to myself, “SCOTUS is going to seriously consider overturning Roe v Wade with this case.” After listening to the oral arguments for the case in January 2022, I was convinced of the outcome we ultimately experienced, first through a leaked draft decision and then the final decision in June 2022.

Health Justice MD was formed after completing my book. Writing Undue Burden helped me decide the next phase of my life in the face of these daunting times. I am excited to leverage over 2 decades of abortion care provision, experience in community based reproductive health and gender affirming care in a state hostile to both in my private community focused clinic, and local, state, and national advocacy work to help organizations apply a justice lens to new and emerging commitments around reproductive health and rights in the wake of the loss of federal protections for abortion.
