WOMANTALK FRIDAY - Hands Off My Ovaries!
My friend, Jennifer Lahl, Founder and Director of the Center for Bioethics and Culture Network, and WOMANTalk Contributing Writer, as well as our Advisory Board Member of Changing Worldviews on Bioethics, is off to Belgium to speak at "Hands Off Our Ovaries!" - a feminist colloquium on reprotechnology. While Jennifer is not a feminist, this is a tremendous opportunity to speak to women leaders about cloning and culture of life issues.
The other speakers include feminist authors who are concerned about modern reprotech, the physical risks to the female body. They include: Anna Zaborska MEP Chairwoman of European Parliament Committee on Women's Rights; Alessandra Di Pietro and Paola Tavella authors of "Untamed mothers-- Against technorape of the female body"; Isla McGuckin author "Pink for girl--what happens when pregnancy doesn't?"
Jennifer will also speak before the Parliament in Brussels on May 3rd. This is tremendous! Be sure to watch for her account of the trip when she returns at WOMANTalk.us.
We definately live in a Changing World!
