From the Organizers:
In this session, we’ll examine the potential criminalization of abortion and the threat of digital surveillance against pregnant people in a post-Roe landscape. What digital technologies may law enforcement use to track abortion seekers, providers, and advocates? How will surveillance escalate without the constitutional right to abortion?
We will also discuss paths forward to reduce the harm of Roe's potential overruling and digital strategies for pregnant people, providers, and advocates to stay safe on the internet.
