After Dobbs: Jewish Advocacy for Abortion Rights

Hosted By: Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS)

Last summer, the US Supreme Court overturned 50 years of constitutional protection for abortion. Since the landmark ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, many states have banned or severely limited abortion access, leading the Jewish community to become increasingly involved in advocacy efforts around abortion rights.

Join this screening of the acclaimed new documentary short “Under G-d.” The film chronicles efforts by members of the Jewish community to ensure abortion access, including the successful legal challenge of an Indiana abortion ban based on the principle of religious freedom.

Following the screening, we’ll hear from two experts on abortion rights: Dr. Michal Raucher (JTS List College, ‘05), scholar of reproduction and religion and Associate Professor of Jewish Studies at Rutgers University, and Dr. Christine Ryan, Associate Director of Columbia Law School’s Law, Rights, and Religion Project, who directs its program on religious liberty and reproductive rights. The speakers will reflect on various legal strategies to counter abortion restrictions and their prospects for broader, long-term success, as well as other initiatives within and beyond the Jewish community to secure and support the right to abortion.
