Event - Abortion in the US: Popularity, Politics and Practice

Carol Sanger, Professor of Law at Columbia Law School, will give the BPAS 2012 Public Lecture in London, 7 March.

We often hear of the ‘Americanisation’ of abortion politics in the UK, but unpicking the substantive threats to women’s reproductive rights in the US can be a challenge. The 2012 bpas public lecture will explore the current state of abortion politics in the US and, at a time when abortion appears increasingly politicised in the UK, reflect on what lessons can be drawn by those keen to protect women’s reproductive autonomy elsewhere.

Professor Carol Sanger is a leading international scholar in the regulation of abortion, motherhood, and family. She is the Barbara Aronstein Black Professor of Law at Columbia Law School in New York and a Senior Research Fellow at St. Anne’s College, Oxford.

Date: Wednesday 7 March 2012

Time: 6:30pm, to be followed by discussion and a wine reception

Venue: The Medical Society of London, 11 Chandos Street, Cavendish Square, London, W1G 9EB
