Issues & Ale @ Home - What’s Next for Abortion Rights in Michigan?

Issues & Ale @ Home – What's Next for Abortion Rights in Michigan?
Wed, May 25, 2022: 7-8:15 PM
A Michigan Radio Free Virtual Event

A leaked document indicates that the U.S. Supreme Court could soon overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. Michigan Radio’s Zoe Clark led a discussion about the legal and political ramifications of Roe v. Wade possibly being overturned, Michigan's existing 1931 law banning abortions, and even what it could mean for other rights of pregnant women at a fast paced Issues & Ale. 

Zoe Clark's panel included:

  • Richard Friedman, Professor of Law, University of Michigan
  • Dr. Lisa Harris (MD, PhD), University of Michigan Institute for Healthcare Policy & Innovation
  • Rick Pluta - Senior Capitol Correspondent for the Michigan Public Radio Network
