Dr. Bruce Moor + author Ellen Messer in Discussion: Back Rooms, Voices from the Illegal Abortion Era
Saturday November 16 | 3:00PM - 4:00PM
BACK ROOMS: VOICES FROM THE ILLEGAL ABORTION ERA
We live in a world with many choices. A quick glance in a regular supermarket probably reveals more than eight different kinds of milk, and countless brands of bottled water. In the USA we can choose whatever religion we want to observe, or choose no religion at all. What about choices about our own bodies? In our changing political landscape, will rights be taken away? This book tells the stories of women whose choices were restricted by the government-- some who were eventually able to obtain abortions and some who were not. What could it mean when you, or someone you love, doesn't have a choice?
This event will be a discussion between Dr. Moor, who wrote the introduction for the new edition, and author Ellen Messer.
In a review of the 2016 edition... Chronogram Magazine wrote...
“To blithely review the re-release of this incredible book as if it’s just business as usual, would be doing its authors and everyone else a profound disservice. I cannot find enough adjectives to underscore this point: BACK ROOMS is a harrowing, necessary look at the stark realities of life and death before the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. The present assault on women’s health care is an assault on women and their right to determine the course of their lives, both despite and because we have the biology to bear children.”
Ellen Messer is an organization development consultant who has been hired for extensive corporate speaking engagements throughout the United States. She is a Kingston, New York resident.
Dr. Bruce Moor has been practicing medicine for over 40 years. He is Chairman of Radiology, Health Alliance of the Hudson Valley, owner of River Radiology in Kingston, New York and a member of the Ethics Board of Benedictine Hospital.
