On Friday, October 4, the Center will help lead a
groundbreaking symposium on the devastating impact that the undue burden
standard—established with the 1992 decision in Planned Parenthood v. Casey—has had on a woman’s right to abortion.
The Center is proud to be partnering with one of the nation’s top law schools, Berkeley Law, University of
California, and its new Center on Reproductive
Rights and Justice to present this urgent conference.
Nearly 200 thought leaders—from the fields of public health,
sociology, history, and law—will convene in Berkeley for Speeches, Symbols, and Substantial
Obstacles: The Doing and “Undue”ing of Abortion Law Since Casey. Throughout
the day, panels will address some of the most pressing issues facing our
movement and look for strategic opportunities to open new fronts in the battle
to protect and advance reproductive rights for the long term.
The symposium kicks off at 11:30 am EST and 8:30 am Pacific.
