Welcome to CFI’s monthly lecture night series!
Sue Frietsche is a Senior Staff Attorney at the Women’s Law Project in Pittsburgh and is also an adjunct law professor at the University of Pittsburgh. She teaches a course titled Reproduction, Sexuality, and the Law. As an attorney at the Women’s Law Project, she has litigated on behalf of low-income women, domestic violence survivors, reproductive health care providers and their patients, teenage women needing confidential abortions, custodial parents owed child support, lesbian and gay parents, incarcerated women, and pregnant women excluded from substance abuse treatment.
Her talk tonight will be focused on the book Living in the Crosshairs, The Untold Stories of Anti-Abortion Terrorism by David Cohen and Krysten Connon. As an attorney on the front lines of the social conservatives all out assault and, at times, violent war on reproductive freedom and rights, Sue is infinitely familiar with the dangers faced by anyone courageous enough to provide reproductive health services. Fortunately, we have chairs so that you can be sitting down as you learn about some of the egregious wrongs perpetrated against people committed to helping women in crisis – and sometimes against the women themselves.
