MEDICAL AND LEGAL DIMENSIONS

Since the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision overturned Roe v. Wade, a wave of information and misinformation has emerged from various sectors, including government, media, and medical sources. This program aims to navigate through this discourse, providing clarity on the current medical and legal landscape and distinguishing truth from ideological posturing. Two distinguished presenters unpack both the legal and medical issues, followed by Q&A.
