Forty years ago, in Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court betrayed our American tradition of inclusion. In legalizing abortion, the court excluded each of us during the first nine months of our lives.

Valparaiso University will host two reflections on the significance of this extraordinary decision. Renowned scholar-advocate Clarke Forsythe (VU law 1983) will discuss his new book describing the politics and guesswork that led to the Roe decision. His talk (“Was Roe v. Wade an Accident?”) will take place in the Stride Courtroom, Valparaiso University School of Law, from 2:40 to 3:30 p.m. on Monday.

A week later, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Jan. 21 in Room 114 of the new Arts and Sciences Building at the university, WVLP radio personality Mike Garcher and I will speak on “Peace and Life Connections," asking how we can work together against different forms of violence (prenatal and postnatal, legal and illegal).

All are welcome without charge.

- Richard Stith, Professor of Law, Valparaiso
