The Fight for Abortion Rights in the Trump Era
A panel hosted by NYC 4 Abortion Rights
Friday, April 28th
20 Jay St, Brooklyn
There has been a steady barrage of attacks on a women’s reproductive rights since the Supreme Court legalized abortion in 1973 — the Hyde Amendment, which blocks Federal Medicaid funding for abortions, laws requiring waiting periods, punitive regulations that have shuttered countless clinics across the country, and an increase in anti-abortion demonstrations in front of clinics. Trump has vowed to defund Planned Parenthood which would severely restrict access to birth control, abortion, and womens health services for millions across the country. Enough is enough! We need to rebuild a fighting movement that is unapologetically for abortion rights and reproductive freedom.
