After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, abortion-rights advocates took their fight to the states—and won. Abortion-rights advocates succeeded in nearly every 2022 election where abortion rights were at stake, including five ballot measures to either enshrine or abolish abortion rights in state constitutions. Join us for a panel discussion with five advocates who helped make these victories happen. Speakers include:
Longstanding dogma dictates that recognizing pregnancy loss threatens abortion rights—acknowledging that miscarriage and stillbirth involve a valuable loss, the theory goes, creates a slippery slope to fetal personhood. For decades, anti-abortion advocates have capitalized on this tension and weaponized the grief that can accompany pregnancy loss in their efforts to legislate personhood and end abortion rights.
