Defending abortion rights in the USA

10:00am Saturday 3 September

About this session

Abortion rights is under threat in the USA. The Supreme Court is on the verge of overturning the 50 year old Roe v Wade decision which granted women legal but limited rights to abortion. With as many as 26 states poised to overturn abortion rights if Roe v Wade is scrapped, this would represent the biggest attack on womens rights in a generation. All of this is poised to take place with a Democrat in the White House and Democratic majorities in both Houses. Yet the strategy of most liberal NGOs has been to uncritically champion the election of Democrats. What went wrong and how should the left respond? This session will discuss resistance to attacks on abortion rights in the USA. Special guest TBA.
