Joyce’s testimony supported the ACLU’s position that an “undue burden” was imposed on women by requiring “in person informed consent” by a physician as well as a 24-hour waiting period before pregnancy could be terminated. A national authority on the impact of abortion restrictions, Joyce is the author of a widely cited 1997 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) which demonstrated that a similar law in Mississippi lowered the abortion rate and increased the proportion of terminations performed later in pregnancy. Joyce provided expert testimony in a similar case in Kentucky in 2000.
