Organizer

Center for Right Wing Studies, Center on Reproductive Rights and Justice, Center for the Study of Law and Society, Berkeley Law’s chapter of If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice

The legal right to abortion is under threat, including the Supreme Court case Gee v. June to be heard on March 4, 2020, with the potential to overturn Roe v. Wade. Despite the successful right-wing erosion of reproductive rights, people continue to have abortions, within, despite, and beyond legal limits. Carole Joffe, co-author of Obstacle Course: The Everyday Struggle to Get an Abortion in America, will draw on interviews with patients, abortion providers, and clinical staff to reveal the barriers people face in exercising their legal rights to medical services. She will also discuss the determination and dedication of those both seeking and working to provide legal abortions. Jill E. Adams of If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice will discuss access to clinical and non-clinical abortion care in the U.S. Her remarks will focus on self-managed abortion and efforts to stop the unjust criminalization of those who end their own pregnancies. #BerkeleyWomen150
