Wednesday, April 10th at 6:00pm, “Custody and Control: Abortion Access for Service Members and Persons Incarcerated or Detained by the Federal Government”
Alexa Kolbi-Molinas, Staff Attorney, Reproductive Freedom Project, ACLU
This lecture will discuss the legal and practical concerns governing abortion access for members of the U.S. military and individuals who are incarcerated or in ICE detention or custody.
In coordination with their current class “Reproductive Rights and Practices,” Professors Carol Sanger and Magda Schaler-Haynes warmly invite you to attend a speaker series concerning various aspects of the regulation of reproduction. These talks are set out below and will start promptly at 6 pm in William and June Warren Hall Room 103 (unless otherwise announced). The speakers are at the forefront of litigation, legislation, and policy and we are proud to open the sessions up to the entire CLS student body and Columbia community. Our cutting edge topics include reproductive care for service women, menstrual equality and the “tampon tax,” Catholic Health Care systems, and employment protection for nursing mothers.
These lectures are open to the Columbia community. So that we can accomodate interested students who are not registered for the class, please email Ghislaine Pages, [email protected], if you plan to attend.
