Downtown Lecture Series: “Reproductive Justice in Arizona and Beyond”


In this talk, Louise Marie Roth, professor in the School of Sociology, will explore legal cases and birth trends that illustrate the implications of fetus-centered and woman-centered approaches to pregnancy for evidence-based care during pregnancy, miscarriage, and birth. She will argue that an emphasis on fetal personhood has the effect of negating personhood for fertile women. An approach focusing on women, as well as others who can become pregnant, is necessary for reproductive justice, especially for poor people, youth, and people of color.
This free, in-person lecture is part of the University of Arizona College of Social and Behavioral Sciences’ Downtown Lecture Series on “Sexualities,” held at the Fox Tucson Theatre on Oct. 12, 19, 26, and Nov. 1 at 6 p.m. Free admission with registration.
