Reproductive Health Technologies Project
Kirsten is the President and CEO of the Reproductive Health Technologies Project, a women’s health group based in DC. RHTP was founded in 1988 to help women in the US obtain access to RU-486. In 2006, RHTP won a great victory when the FDA made Plan B emergency contraception available over the counter. In addition to its policy work, RHTP has done groundbreaking research on messaging on abortion and related issues, using new methodologies like cognitive linguistics, psychological analysis, and advanced statistical modeling, and surveys that oversample African-American and Latino populations.
