The Sexual and Reproductive Health Matters (SRHM) invites you to discuss a new wave of anti-abortion strategy and tactics that has been sweeping across the United States and has begun influencing anti-abortion strategy globally.
The webinar will be moderated Nina Sun, Associate Editor of SRHM, Human Rights Lawyer and Deputy Director of Global Health and Human Rights, Dornsife School of Public Health at Drexel University.

- Nimra Chowdhry from the Center for Reproductive Rights who will discuss state legislative trends and legal context for early abortion bans across the United States.
