Alvare Takes Part in AUL Legal Symposium

Professor Helen Alvaré participated in a January 24 legal symposium sponsored by Americans United for Life (AUL) at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

The half-day event, entitled "The Future of Roe: Women, Health and Law in the Obama Era," was billed by its organizers as an opportunity to allow media, legislators and the public to hear from journalists, doctors and scholars on how Roe has shaped medicine, law and culture in the past four decades and what the future might hold. 

The program featured panel discussions offering perspectives of both medical and legal experts, as well as remarks by commentator Bil Kristol of The Weekly Standard.
