Bodily Autonomy Post-Dobbs: Advocacy for Reproductive Justice, Disability, and LGBTQ+

Thursday, March 30, 2023
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court handed down its decision in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a decision that effectively reversed Roe v. Wade (1973) and overturned fifty years of reproductive-justice law. A national debate on the rights and limitations of bodily autonomy has ensued.

What rights do Americans have regarding their own bodies and the choices they can make about those bodies? What will be the ramifications for those choices in the wake of the Dobbs decision? The TWU College of Arts and Sciences Public Affairs Forum participates in the ongoing national dialogue, and our speakers will address the current and future status of bodily autonomy rights in terms of reproductive justice and disabled and LGBTQ + people.

Speakers include Loren Jacobson, Adri Pérez, Sofia Sepulveda, and Whitney West.
