Personhood: The Fight for Reproductive Justice and Human Rights

National Advocates for Pregnant Women

Date: Oct 11th

Join us for a short preview of Personhood, a documentary film examining the fetal rights movement through the story of one Wisconsin woman, and a panel discussion on the risks fetal personhood laws pose to the constitutional and human rights of all pregnant people. This event will examine how such laws impact more than the right to have an abortion, and in-fact threaten every aspect of a person's rights during pregnancy.
