On 30 November, the Zonta Club of Cleveland, USA, along with several other community organizations, partnered with the City Club of Cleveland to bring social justice forum entitled “The Changing Landscape of Reproductive Rights.”
After the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization completely altered the legal landscape for access to abortion, the future of legal protections for abortion has become increasingly uncertain.
The forum featured Fatima Goss Graves, the president and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center, and Helen Forbes Fields, the president and CEO of YWCA of Greater Cleveland, to discuss this evolving issue and the legal strategies developed and deployed to address growing concerns.
“One in four women in this country have access to abortion care, and we shouldn’t pretend like that is not a fact. I trust them to make the decisions they need to make for themselves and their families,” said Fatima.
