FOLCS Headlines: Abortion Rights Before the Supreme Court

December 9, 2021

Introducing FOLCS Headlines, the latest event series to join our queue of engaging programming.  FOLCS Headlines is a mini-series designed to address the hot-button issues of the week that just can’t be kept off the front page, or out of our dinner table conversations.  When a social, political, legal, or cultural landmark seems too vast to untangle, join FOLCS for a half-hour conversation with an expert on the topic at hand.

In this debut installment, FOLCS addressed the recent abortion arguments as heard before the Supreme Court.  Abortion is of course highly emotional and personal matter, though it remains an issue long shrouded in fear, politicization, and questions of both autonomy and constitutionality.  On Thursday, December 9th, 2021 FOLCS was joined by New York Times Supreme Court Correspondent Adam Liptak, to break down the week’s Supreme Court arguments and the future of reproductive rights.
