“Roe at 40: Providers at Risk”
Kick-off Event at the Offices of Montgomery-McCracken Walker & Rhoads
January 24, 2013 | 5:30-7:00 pm
To commemorate the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade Women’s Medical Fund and Women’s Law Project are proud to present: “Roe at 40: Providers at Risk”
Come learn about the harassment, violence and terrorism abortion providers experience and how the law is helping – or not.
Join David S. Cohen, Associate Professor of Law at Drexel University’s Earle Mack School of Law, and Krysten Connon (Drexel School of Law, Class of 2012) as they present their research on the targeted harassment of abortion providers. Cohen and Connon traveled the country and interviewed 85 abortion providers who shared their most personal and terrifying moments and how they cope with the risks they face.
The presentation will survey the landscape of what abortion providers are dealing with and offer thoughts on how the law can better protect providers.
