|Recurring Program (See all)
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until June 22, 2022
The abortion debate has just reached fever pitch following the leak of the Supreme Court majority opinion suggesting the demise of Roe vs. Wade. If it is overturned, what other personal freedoms are already/will be in danger: transgender health services, gay marriage, contraception?
We will examine the issue from multiple perspectives:
- Abortion in Jewish Law (Rachel Biale)
- The Abortion Wars: The social-political-cultural divide, impact on public health (Prof. Carole Joffe), and Jewish values undergird working as an abortion provider (Dr. Debbie Bamberger)
- Focus on Abortion: Americans Share Their Stories: A Photographic Journey (Roslyn Banish)
- What’s Next: Legal Implication and Looming Battles: Same-sex marriage and parental right, contraception, and more (Attorney Linda Scaparotti)
