Professor Shoshanna Ehrlich of the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department at UMass Boston will speak about the current threat to abortion rights in the United States.
She will discuss the Mississippi “heartbeat” case currently before the Supreme Court, which, for the first time since Roe v. Wade was decided, has an anti-abortion majority. She will also discuss the recent Texas law that not only bans abortion at six weeks, but deputizes private citizens to sue anyone who “aids or abets” an abortion after this limit.
