Member, Prof Emeritus Pat Shifferd will conduct the Sunday Service at Blue Hills Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Rice Lake October 23 at 10 a.m.,which will relate to the ramifications of changes in Wisconsin health care following the Supreme Court decision to abandon Roe v/ Wade protections.  How will this affect the availability of various procedures related to women’s reproductive care and surrounding issues?

Prof Pat Shifferd

After a brief look at the struggles of women in the 20th Century, the right to vote and   decent working conditions, Shifferd’s topic will turn to the legal and social controversies surrounding the issue of abortion.  With states now having control over access, huge differences exist from state to state.  As in Wisconsin, these divisions are more evident than ever, with anti-abortion groups pushing restrictions further and  women’s rights groups developing legal and social strategies to assist women in control over their lives.
