Our annual Roe v. Wade commemorative events have traditionally examined the theme of access to reproductive health care, especially in the context of abortion and comprehensive sexuality education. At this year’s event, Danger: Pregnancy Ahead, we will broaden our lens and examine the growing number of infringements on access to health care and how women’s overall health is being alarmingly jeopardized.
This year’s program will shed light on these issues with a special panel of experts in the field of reproductive health and advocacy. We will look at the criminalization of both abortion and pregnancy, discuss how abortion restrictions are impacting medical education and patient services, and examine the threats that accompany new medical and technological advancements in reproductive health care services.
Members, co-sponsors and interested community members: $20
Includes a buffet lunch.
