“The reproductive rights framework is largely centered on achieving women’s individualistic reproductive freedom through the legal system and has historically focused largely on the pro-choice and pro-life debate, sex education, and family planning.

The reproductive justice framework acknowledges the ways that socioeconomic status, gender, and race shape reproductive health care experiences and health policy.

Essentially, the reproductive rights framework is a more individualistic and legal approach, while reproductive justice is expansive, intersectional, and holistic.”
