An open discussion of the state of reproductive and abortion rights in the United States and across the globe following the killing of Dr. George Tiller, one of the few doctors providing late-term abortions in the United States and a constant target of anti-abortion groups. We will be discussing the effect of Dr. Tiller’s murder on reproductive and abortion rights, the current atmosphere in New Zealand and abroad, and why reproductive and abortion rights should be a high priority.
Featuring an introduction by Tom Baumann, who will discuss the ramifications of Dr. Tiller’s murder in the United States as well as his first-hand experiences in the struggle for reproductive and abortion rights.
"Tom Baumann has been active in protesting against the May 31 killing of Dr. George Tiller and in campaigning for women's right to choose abortion. He is a leader of the Young Socialists in the United States and is a candidate for Manhattan borough president for the Socialist Workers Party election campaign. He lives in New York and is a student at Hunter College."
