The Intersections of the Supreme Court’s Decision on Abortion Rights

The Intersections of the Supreme Court’s Decision on Abortion Rights

Session Type(s): Panel

Starts: Friday, Aug. 19 1:30 PM (Eastern)

Ends: Friday, Aug. 19 2:30 PM (Eastern)

The Supreme Court’s approaching decision in a challenge to Mississippi’s unconstitutional 15-week abortion ban will predictively be unfavorable. Abortion restrictions have a massive impact on people’s lives in more ways than pregnancy outcomes. The focus will be on issues that intersect with abortion typically not considered by lawmakers. Western Pennsylvania is a region about to become a key point for abortion access, with this conference located blocks away from one of only two abortion clinics in the region. Join us as we discuss the intersections of race, gender, economic status, policy, and navigating the right to choose, while uplifting local organizations’ work for those most affected but often left out of the discussion.
