"The Choice is Only for the Women": Sarah Weddington

When: Thu., Feb. 18, 7 p.m. 2010

The concept of "personhood" remains a volatile source of ideological debate, one that's underpinned some of the best-known Supreme Court cases in recent memory. You can find it at the heart of 1954's Brown v. Board of Education, which overturned the "separate but equal" treatment of different races, as well as last month's Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which grants corporations everything short of the right to vote. But the most controversial of all was 1973's Roe v. Wade, which remains the fulcrum point for abortion rights debates. Attorney Sarah Weddington, who successfully argued the landmark case at the age of 26, will speak about Roe and women's rights at 7 tonight in CSU-Pueblo's Hoag Recital Hall (2200 Bonforte Blvd., bit.ly/9ZxLVh). Admission is free but seating is limited, so plan accordingly. — Bill Forman
