Featuring Geoffrey R. Stone

We have reached capacity for this event, and registration is now closed. Walk-ins are still welcome to attend but cannot be guaranteed seating.

How have attitudes toward contraception and abortion evolved over time? How has the Supreme Court come to play a central role in defining these fundamental rights of American citizens? And what is the future of these rights with Donald Trump’s existing (and possible future) appointments to the Supreme Court?

Drawing from his new book, Sex and the Constitution, legal scholar Geoffrey Stone, JD’71, traces the complex and fascinating relationship between sex, religion, and law from the ancient world to the present.
