Beyond Roe: Reproductive Justice in a Changing World
Rutgers School of Law – Camden,
October 11, 2013 | 8:00 am-7:30 pm
Using the 40th Anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade as a point of departure, this conference will bring together scholars, activists, and practitioners to discuss a wide range of issues related to reproductive justice and reproductive oppression. The conference deliberately focuses on justice rather than rights to signal a commitment to discussing the regulation of reproduction, in all the forms that such regulation takes, from a social justice perspective. The conference will explore and study diverse experiences rooted in differences that emerge from race, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, age, immigration status, educational level, histories of incarceration and the like. With a broad range of thinkers addressing a multiplicity of issues, the conference will offer an opportunity to look beyond Roe and abortion to explore how to create a world in which reproductive justice is available to all.
