Join us for an exploration of reproductive rights in America beyond just Roe v. Wade. Topics will include the origins of Planned Parenthood, the abortion debates of the twentieth century, the early birth-control movement, and the role of the Supreme Court on this issue. Front-and-center will be a retelling of the three most important reproductive rights cases, including Roe, to gain a better grasp of exactly how reproductive rights are positioned and protected in our laws and the current landscape of the reproductive rights debate.
