Study of OB-GYNs in Post-Roe America (SOPRA)

January 2023 – December 2024

PI: Dr. Erika Sabbath, ScD

The Study of OB-GYNs in Post-Roe America (SOPRA) is a multi-state qualitative study that aims 1) to understand and characterize US OB-GYNs’ perceptions of the personal and professional impacts of practicing under post-Dobbs abortion bans, and 2) to identify and disseminate practices that support OB-GYNs’ professional wellbeing in a restrictive policy environment. For this study, investigators conducted semi-structured qualitative interviews from March-August 2023 of 54 OB-GYNs in 13 states with near-total abortion bans.

This study is funded by a grant from the Greenwall Foundation.
