In 1973, the United States Supreme Court affirmed women’s fundamental reproductive rights in establishing that the right to terminate a pregnancy was guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. The years since, however, have seen a regressive movement to curtail those rights, mobilized through a number of political tools: TRAP laws which target abortion providers with excessive and costly over-regulation; intrusions on the privacy and security of personal information between women and their doctors; cuts to the funding of providers of women’s health care services; attempts to selectively punish doctors and organizations who provide those services; and much more.This luncheon will bring together legal and medical professionals, scholars, organizers, community leaders and voices to address the state of women’s reproductive and health care rights.
