The Center on Reproductive Rights and Justice at Berkeley Law (CRRJ) invites you to hear Lynn Paltrow of National Advocates for Pregnant Women present, “Roe v. Wade and the New Jane Crow:  Reproductive Rights in the Age of Mass Incarceration,” forthcoming, American Journal of Public Health.  Nearly 40 years ago, Roe v. Wade decriminalized abortion. So, why are women who have abortions being arrested today?  Why are hundreds of pregnant women being subjected to arrests, detentions, and forced medical interventions?  This talk will examine the relationships among abortion, race, the war on drugs, and the growth of the prison industrial complex.
