Before Roe v. Wade presented by Dr. Susan Rensing. 

This talk will use a reproductive justice framework to discuss some of the historical struggles in the decades before the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. Topics will include the activism of women of color to resist coercive sterilizations, the legal work of Ruth Bader Ginsburg on pregnancy discrimination, and the efforts of the Clergy Consultation Service to liberalize state-level abortion laws.

Susan Rensing is a historian of eugenics and reproductive justice who also works on contemporary health equity projects. She teaches in the department of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies at Kansas State University.
