Join KOSU, StateImpact Oklahoma for a Twitter Spaces conversation about reproductive care in Oklahoma
Reproductive rights and abortion are very much in the news right now and have been for the last year. KOSU will be hosting a Twitter Spaces event on Monday, May 9 at 12 p.m. CST to discuss the new abortion laws recently passed and signed into law in Oklahoma.
In the discussion, the speakers will be talking about how the McGirt v. Oklahoma decision applies, given that Tulsa and a large part of eastern Oklahoma is considered reservation land for purposes of the Major Crimes Act.
Join KOSU Indigenous Affairs reporter Allison Herrera, StateImpact Oklahoma health reporter Catherine Sweeney and Professor Aila Hoss from the University of Tulsa College of Law, where she teaches and researches at the intersection of Indian law and health law. We will be taking questions and intend to keep reporting on this topic over the course of the next year.
You must be on Twitter to join the conversation as it happens in real time. However, we will be recording it and will publish an edited version of it on KOSU.org.
