Post-Roe Women’s Health Care in Ohio: Just the Facts
September 8, 2022, 7:00 PM EST
Following the overturning of Roe, there has been a swirl of information and misinformation about abortion and the impact of efforts to restrict abortion access on women’s health. What are the facts from a medical and legal perspective about abortion and reproductive care and the downstream effects these restrictions are having? What issues, situations and jeopardies are doctors, caregivers, and women and other individuals who are pregnant or who may become pregnant actually facing? What does the legal landscape in Ohio look like given the current bans, the pending legislation to further restrict abortion access, and the impact of federal actions? Join us for an informative webinar presentation featuring maternal-fetal medicine and reproductive health physicians and a noted legal expert to develop a better understanding of these issues in a nonpartisan fact-based forum. Moderated by Karen Kasler, Statehouse Bureau Chief, Ohio Public Radio and Television. PANELISTS: David Hackney, M.D., Maternal Fetal Medicine Rebecca Flyckt, M.D., Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Jessie Hill, J.D., Professor of Law at Case Western Reserve University
Beyond Politics: The Economic, Public Health, and Religious Case for Reproductive Choice
September 15, 2022, 6:30 PM EST
Now more than ever, we need to have dialogue about why abortion access matters to all Ohioans, and why labeling abortion as partisan is neither accurate nor helpful. Join us for our annual Women's Equality Day event; this year we will feature a panel of experts pushing back on the concept that abortion is a partisan issue. We will have a former Republican lawmaker, as well as panelists exploring the issue in economic, religious, and public health terms.
