Sarah Erdreich at Montefiore Medical Center

March 12, 2013 4:30pm

Sarah Erdreich will be at the Montefiore Medical Center on March 12 from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. in a free event to discuss her thought-provoking new book, Generation Roe: Inside the Future of the Pro-Choice Movement . Her appearance is part of a larger event put on by the center including a short video about pre Roe v. Wade abortion and current abortion laws in the US.
Forty years after Roe v. Wade, the battle for abortion rights is still raging. Despite the fact that one-third of American women will have an abortion by the time they are 45, the topic of abortion is still surrounded by controversy. In her new book, Generation Roe, Sarah Erdreich delves into the connection between abortion rights, sexuality, autonomy, and privacy. Generation Roe does not only expose the truth behind the anti-choice rhetoric, but it also tells the stories of those who devote their lives to pursue careers in the field, despite criticism and threats.Erdreich has been identified as a leading pro-choice activist by Newsweek, and her incisive writings on abortion rights have been noted by Jezebel, Feministing, and the National Partnership for Women and Families. Check out Sarah’s op-ed “The Next Forty Years” on the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade on January 22th: “For far too long, the abortion debate has been dominated by the inflammatory and sensationalistic rhetoric of the anti-choice movement. It is time for new voices to be heard, ones that reflect the reality of this very common choice and resonate not just with the pro-choice faithful but with the millions of people in this country that have grown up with legal abortion and might otherwise take this right for granted.”

Join Sarah Erdreich in her discussion of Generation Roe and the challenges facing the next generation of pro-choice activists.
