The Fight for Reproductive Freedom: State Landscape, SCOTUS & the Women’s Health Protection Act
Join the Global Women’s Caucus and NARAL Pro-Choice America for a lively panel discussion with experts who will share the state of anti-choice legislation, the current Supreme Court dilemma, and the status of the Women’s Health Protection Act in Congress.
European abortion legislation will also be discussed as a metric to compare and contrast current and future U.S. policy decisions.
