Thomson Reuters cites Professor Caitlin Borgmann in an article about Oklahoma Senate Bill 1433, or the Personhood Act. According to the article, the bill would require the state to give unborn children the same rights and privileges available to other citizens from the moment of conception until birth. Citing Borgmann on the bill’s implications, the article continues, “If signed into law, the bill would appear to ban abortion outright and could trigger a number of immediate legal challenges.”
Professor Borgmann has litigated reproductive rights cases and has also spoken and written widely about reproductive rights and given testimony before several state legislatures on this issue.
