Roe v. Wade at 50: Past and Prologue
Roe v. Wade at 50:
Past and Prologue
Join us for a conversation about history, law, and abortion activism on Friday, March 17th at 4pm.
January 2023 marked the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion in the United States. This anniversary now has peculiar resonance as the Dobbs decision last summer overturned the prior decision. Abortion debates invoke history in many ways. Please join us for a conversation about the connections among history, medicine, law, and activism around abortion. What can history suggest about our present moment? And how might our moment shape the various histories of abortion now being written?
