ACS Presents Speaker on Reproductive Rights
How can the content of public commentary on abortion, which generally condemns it as, at best, a necessary evil, be reconciled with the fact that millions of women have chosen abortion? How is the anti-abortion movement connected with government policies of abstinence-only sex education and marriage promotion? What is the "partial birth" abortion ban all about? Why is the right to legal abortion seen by some as a prerequisite to women's equality? The American Constitution Society (ACS) is pleased to welcome Jennifer Brown, the vice president and legal director for Legal Momentum, an organization for advancing women's rights. Brown will discuss these complex issues in her talk, "The Gray of Reproductive Rights: Looking Beyond the Deep Discomfort," from noon to 1 p.m. in the Moot Court Room. Pizza will be provided.
