Join The Guardian Live for panel discussion on the repeal of the landmark Roe V Wade decision and what this could mean for the U.S. and globally.
Date & Time: Wednesday, July 6 @ noon PT (8 PM London)
This event will be hosted on a third-party live streaming platform Zoom. Closed captions will be available for this event.
When Justice Samuel Alito’s abrasive 98-page draft calling for the end of federal abortion rights in America was leaked to Politico, it threatened to reverse a historic victory of the global women’s movement.
Abortion has been legal throughout the US for nearly a half century, since the Supreme Court’s 1973 landmark Roe v Wade decision. If the Supreme Court overturns this ruling later this summer, abortion will be banned in dozens of US states, and anti-abortion forces around the world may feel empowered to enact new restrictions elsewhere, with fatal consequences for the poorest communities and for reproductive freedom everywhere.
--What comes next?
--Will we see increased criminalization of abortion in the US? Will other rights, such as marriage equality and IVF access, be targeted next as Christian fundamentalists gain further traction in US politics?
--How will this ruling impact US Congressional elections later this year given that more than seven in 10 Americans oppose the overturning of Roe v Wade?
Join our panel of speakers with chair, Guardian columnist, Arwa Mahdawi; and Michele Bratcher Goodwin, director of the Center for Biotechnology & Global Health Policy; with more to be announced.
