LWV Hosts Discussion on Womens Reproductive Rights
June 14, 2012 -
The League of Women Voters (LWV) of Santa Monica invites the public to an afternoon event on Saturday, June 16th, 2 p.m., at the home of Jan Goodman & Jerry Manpearl for a discussion of the political background and significance of the escalating attacks on American womens reproductive freedoms and access to reproductive health services.
Nancy L. Cohen, author of the recent book Delirium: How the Sexual Revolution is Polarizing America, and Serena Josel, Director of Public Affairs, Planned Parenthood Los Angeles will join in conversation facilitated by Southern California journalist Anthea Raymond.
In 1983, the League adopted its position on the issue with a statement that public policy in a pluralistic society must affirm the constitutional right of privacy of the individual to make reproductive choices.
Planned Parenthood has been central to this struggle from the start, and remains steadfast even as it weathers attacks on its funding and purpose from political forces intent on derailing its mission and setting back the progress it has achieved in ensuring Americans the fundamental liberty of determining their own reproductive choices.
