Julia Kaye

Senior Staff Attorney, Reproductive Freedom Project



Julia Kaye (she/her) is a Senior Staff Attorney with the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project, where she fights against laws that limit access to essential reproductive health care. Julia was lead counsel in the two lawsuits, ACOG v. FDA and Chelius v. Becerra, that led the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to eliminate its in-person requirement for mifepristone, a safe and effective drug used for abortion and miscarriage care, and permit patients to obtain the medication by mail and at pharmacies. She has also led or co-counseled litigation in numerous states challenging abortion bans, mandatory abortion delay requirements, laws preventing qualified midwives and nurse practitioners from providing abortion and/or birthing care, and other political interference with patients’ health and autonomy. Julia clerked for the Honorable Edward R. Korman in the Eastern District of New York and holds degrees from New York University School of Law and Barnard College.

Julia has commented on abortion restrictions for BBC World News, the Lovett or Leave It podcast, and the Washington Post, among other outlets.
