Description:

Abortion will kill you, drive you insane, make you infertile, and haunt you forever. These and many other falsehoods are influencing public opinion and helping to change laws all over the country. Whatever happened to science?

Katha Pollitt is a polemicist, poet, and feminist; she writes the award-winning column “Subject to Debate” for The Nation magazine. Her latest book is Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights; she is also the author of two books of poetry and several collections of essays.

No tickets are required for this event, but seating is first-come, first-served.
