P&P Live!: Diana Greene Foster - The Turnaway Study - in conversation with Cecile Richards

Upcoming Event
Friday, June 12, 2020 - 6:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

As the debate about abortion rights intensifies, Diana Greene Foster's The Turnaway Study offers an in-depth examination of the real-world consequences for women of being denied abortions and provides evidence to refute the claim that abortion harms women. With brilliant synthesis and startling statistics--that thousands of American women are unable to access abortions; that 99% of women who receive an abortion do not regret it five years later-- The Turnaway Study is a necessary and revelatory look at the impact of abortion access on people's lives .

Diana Greene Foster s a professor at the University of California, San Francisco in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences and director of research at Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health. An internationally recognized expert on women's experiences with contraception and abortion, she is the principal investigator of the Turnaway Study.

Cecile Richards is a co-founder of Supermajority, former president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, New York Times bestselling author of Make Trouble, and lifelong organizer for women’s rights and economic justice.
