Choices: A Reproductive Rights Exhibition

May 21 @ 3:00 PM - June 18 @ 6:00 PM

Choices: A Reproductive Rights Exhibition

This exhibition includes artists who address the struggle for reproductive freedoms and the right to abortion. Our reproductive rights have been under constant attack as policymakers and anti-choice organizations in a number of states work insidiously to pass new, restrictive abortion laws.

“Reproductive freedom is critical to a whole range of issues…. It should not be seen as a privilege or as a benefit, but a fundamental human right.”

Faye Wattleton

This timely and urgent exhibition will address the landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court ruled that the constitutional right to privacy:

is broad enough to encompass a woman’s decision whether or not to terminate her pregnancy”

Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973)

The Supreme Court’s decision made abortion safer and more accessible at a time when 17 percent of all deaths due to pregnancy and childbirth were the result of illegal abortion.  (Gold, Rebecca Benson. (1990). Abortion and Women’s Health: A Turning Point for America? New York: The Alan Guttmacher Institute.)

Vogt, Giovanna Pizzoferrato Ribeiro, Jamie Naqvi, Kailani McDaniel, Kathryn Pitt, Leticia Velasquez, Mariona Barkus, Mayce Keeler, Meloria Walters, Nancy Buchanan, Rebecca Nabarrete, Sarah Wilson, Shula Singer Arbel, Valerie Darling, and Veronica An
