Those seeking to have Roe overturned have long pretended that their only goal is stopping abortions. And the decision in Dobbs pretends to be about one thing and one thing only – abortion. But as the dissenters so astutely observed: “Whatever the exact scope of the coming laws, one result of [the] decision is certain: the curtailment of women’s rights, and of their status as free and equal citizens.” 

Lynn Paltrow, the founder of Pregnancy Justice who has spent decades representing women jailed for miscarriage, stillbirths and abortion, will join us to address what that curtailment looks like and what we can do to ensure the constitutional rights and personhood of all people including women.  The conversation will be led by Reproductive Rights Chair Phoebe Pollinger.

DATE: Thursday, March 7, 2024

TIME: 12 noon – 2 pm

PLACE: Livingston, NJ (Exact location to be provided closer to event)

REGISTRATION FEE: $32 per person, includes lunch.
