Women Don t Intend To Fall In Any More Of Your TRAPs
Andrew Beck, attorney, ACLU Reproductive Rights Project

Last week women fought to climb out of another TRAP dug for them on their long road for reproductive health and the control of their bodies. The deepest of TRAPs (Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers), laws that are cloaked in the deceptive language of women s health, but which actually put women at risk, by shutting down health centers where women can get safe and legal abortions was just argued at the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court case was the most important abortion case in decades. Inside the court, the justices asked how the law, HB2, will actually help Texas women. Meanwhile, outside advocates gathered to demonstrate their support for abortion access, for every woman in every state. Shifts in the power structure of Congress have led to promises to strip away access to reproductive health care, especially abortion. Laws that make it difficult if not impossible for a woman to get an abortion if she needs one, particularly if she is poor, are increasing at an alarming pace.
At this critical time, we will reveal whose behind the TRAPs, and what we can expect from the Supreme Court in the wake of this latest anti-abortion case, and most importantly on protecting access to affordable contraception, and a woman's ability to make personal, private decisions about pregnancy and abortion, and fighting pregnancy discrimination.
Ain t I a Woman
featuring critically acclaimed actress Vinnie Burrows

In the town of Akron, Ohio in 1851, an African American woman delivered a moving speech at the Womens Convention that would be remembered for its rawness, authenticity, and powerful message and holds as much relevance today as it did then. Sojourner Truth spoke to the Women's Convention about her experiences and tribulations as not only a woman in that day s society but as a Black woman. She established a sense of identity as a victim of discrimination by describing how she faced prejudices as a Black person and as a woman in order to incite an emotional response in her audience and invited her audience, mostly women suffering from their own forms of discrimination, to realize the injustices of which they too are victims.
