Abortion Without Apology

Socialism 2017

August 15, 2017

Since abortion became legal in the U.S. it has been under attack, from the 1976 Hyde Amendment that barred federal funding for abortion, to the defunding of Planned Parenthood and the appointment of anti-abortion conservative Neil Gorsich to Trump’s Supreme Court. We know that Republican conservatives and right-wing evangelicals have been at the forefront of efforts to push abortion again into the back alleys. Unfortunately, the mainstream women’s organizations, and the Democratic Party they are tied to, have not put up much of a fight to defend it. This talk will show how liberal policies have helped weaken our side by undermining any confident stand for women's right to choose, instead seeking middle ground with the right. Panelists will make the case for a confident reproductive rights movement that can win a new generation of women and men to fighting for abortion without apology.
