Lady Parts Justice League is on a comedy-and-activism themed road trip they’re calling the Vagical Mystery Tour this summer, and the Women’s Law Project will be a part of their Pittsburgh show!
WLP Senior Staff Attorney Susan Frietsche will be featured as a special guest at LPJ League’s July 19th Pittsburgh show at The Funhouse @ Mr. Smalls, where she’ll discuss the landscape of reproductive rights in Pennsylvania along with representatives from the Western Pennsylvania Fund for Choice and the Allegheny Reproductive Health Center after the showcase. (Get tickets!)
The Pittsburgh event features host Lizz Winstead, comedians Leah Bonnema, Alex English and Joyelle Johnson, the sketch troupe Buzz Off Lucille, and musician Jill Sobule.
Pennsylvania is a must-see destination on a road trip where the idea is to stop in every state where equal access to reproductive healthcare is under attack. “I think a lot of people don’t realize that Pennsylvania is a hotbed of [anti-]abortion extremism,” Winstead recently told the Pittsburgh CityPaper.
If this information surprises you, and you live in Pennsylvania, please sign up for our Action Alerts, and check out these 12 facts about the attacks on reproductive rights and health in Pennsylvania.
In addition to the 1, 237 pages of laws, statutes and regulations governing access to abortion care already on the books in Pennsylvania, state lawmakers are currently trying to pass arguably the most severe abortion restriction in the country (that would be SB3). They are also currently considering banning Medicaid reimbursement payments for preventative reproductive healthcare services provided at Planned Parenthood facilities (that would be SB300) while using taxpayer money to fund “crisis pregnancy centers.”
We hope to see you at the Funhouse on July 19! Find tickets here.
