New York's Abortion Law: Are We Really Protected?

A Forum on the Reproductive Health and Privacy Protection Act

Judson Memorial Church
55 Washington Square South, NYC

Thursday, March 13

As federal protections of abortion access are weakened, New York’s leading reproductive rights organizations have been asking this question. The Bush administration has filled the courts with ultra-conservative judges that have made devastating decisions regarding women’s health. The Supreme Court’s unprecedented move to uphold the federal abortion ban last April was a wake-up call that we must fight to ensure that New York continues to protect and respect a woman’s ability to make private reproductive health care decisions.
On March 13, please join us and our distinguished panel to discuss where New York’s law stands now and how we can ensure New York remains a beacon for women’s health and safety.
