Pushing Limits

Reproductive Justice and Disability – Pushing Limits – September 9, 2022


Patty Berne

The clamor about the Supreme Court’s decision to revoke Roe v. Wade and allow the states to make their own rules about a woman’s reproductive right to abortion has been loud.

The women-led backlash to this decision may actually allow the Democrats to keep control of the House of Representatives next year.   But, in all the noise and anguish, voices of women with disabilities have generally been absent.

In this program, we are going to shout truth into that wall of silence – because this decision has grave consequences for women with disabilities and those who love them.

Elise Cossart-Daly


Sins Invalid’s Director Patty Berne talks to Bianca Laureano, MA, CSE, CSES, about reproductive rights, disability, ableism and much more.  (from their 2020 series “Reproductive Justice is Disability Justice.”)

Santa Barbara civil rights attorney, Elise Cossart-Daly, explains how the court decision strikes a blow against privacy rights for people with disabilities.
