The Intersection of Disability Rights and Reproductive Rights

The #FreeBritney movement has brought much needed attention to the conservatorship system, but many people say this is a disability rights issue that has long needed closer scrutiny. An estimated 1.5 million Americans are under some form of a conservatorship, where a court appoints a third party to make personal, financial and medical decisions for them. Many of these people are disabled adults who advocates say have been stripped of their rights. Journalist Sara Luterman has written in The Nation about the intersection of disability and reproductive rights and how many women in conservatorships are forced to take birth control. #NotJustBritney
