Greg Abbott of Texas signed Senate Bill 8 into law. It is the most restrictive abortion law in the nation, prohibiting abortions as early as the sixth week of pregnancy before most people know they are pregnant. Today, it is laws like these, the ultra-conservative majority, and the Supreme Court has activists, medical providers, and everyday Americans worried that we are about to lose our most fundamental reproductive protections. Join us for a conversation with co-authors Kathryn Kolbert and Julie F. Kay as they discuss reproductive rights, the legal system, and introduce a bold new strategy to safeguard our health and rights. This conversation will help us answer the question: what can we do NOW to save reproductive freedom. This conversation will be moderated by Gaby Goldstein, Co-Founder and Senior Vice President for Strategic Initiatives at Sister District, a national organization that builds progressive power in state legislatures.
