The Status of Reproductive Rights in Kansas

February 1 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

What is the state of women’s access to reproductive health care in Kansas?

Reproductive health and the right to abortion will likely be prominent issues in the Kansas legislative session, especially in light of Kansas Supreme Court’s landmark ruling last year affirming that the state’s constitution protects Kansas women’s right to safe and legal abortion.

Join us to learn and discuss the issues affecting Kansans concerning reproductive rights, including how socioeconomics and current laws restrict access to care.

Panelists:

  • Valerie French, MD, a family planning specialist
  • Bob Eye, an environmental and civil rights attorney
  • Sofia Navarro, a women’s health nurse practitioner

Journalist Lynn Horsley will moderate the panel discussion.

The event is co-sponsored by MainStream Coalition and the League of Women Voters of Johnson County.

Come at 8:30 a.m. and enjoy food provided by our hospitality volunteers. We are unable to provide coffee. So please feel free to bring your own caffeinated beverage.

NOTE THE LOCATION: To accommodate a larger crowd, this meeting will be at Meadowbrook Park Clubhouse at 9101 Nall Ave., which is a departure from our regular Saturday morning meeting venue.
