Podcast: Legal History of Abortion in the U.S.
On this episode of the Birds and the Beehive Podcast, we learn about the legal history of abortion in the United States. Our guest is Marina Lowe of the ACLU of Utah. We talk about abortion in the US before and after Roe v. Wade, the rise of TRAP laws, abortion laws in Utah, and of course, what is happening with the current wave of abortion bans.
Marina Lowe is the Legislative & Policy Counsel with the American Civil Liberties Union of Utah. She represents the ACLU of Utah at the Utah State Capitol from January through March, and throughout the rest of the year, cultivates relationships with elected officials – from U.S. Congressmen and Senators to local city councilpeople – across the state to further the protection of civil liberties in Utah.
Before joining the ACLU of Utah, Marina Lowe worked with the Salt Lake Legal Defenders Association, focusing on criminal appeals, and as an associate at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, LLP in San Francisco, concentrating on commercial and intellectual property litigation.
