WHAT IS FETICIDE, WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH WOMEN’S HEALTH CARE, AND DID SOMEONE SET THE CLOCK BACK?

Did you hear about the Indiana woman who had a miscarriage and was sent to jail for 40 years for “feticide?”  Or the woman, also in Indiana, who attempted to commit suicide while she was pregnant and spent a year in jail for harming the baby? These aren’t isolated cases, and they aren’t all happening in Indiana.  One study actually found hundreds of cases where women were arrested for doing something while pregnant that some official found harmful to their pregnancies. 

So what does this mean for women around the country? And what about health care in general? Has health care reform and resultant hospital mergers have an impact on women, on pregnancies, on you?

Join us Saturday as we talk with Rachel Berkson, NARAL Pro-Choice Washington Executive Director. Rachel has been Associate Director of Washington Community Action Network. the Executive Director of the SEIU Washington State Council, where her primary focus was coordinating the union’s joint political and legislative programs, and from 2000 - 2006 was a lead organizer with the Working Families Party, a labor and community-based grassroots political party in New York State. Join us as we hash over what’s happening with pregnant women and politics, women’s health care, and where we are headed when it comes to women’s health in this country.
