Lunch ‘n’ Learn: The so-called Personhood Amendment- A Legal Nightmare

Despite losing by a 3-1 margin in 2008, the Personhood Amendment is back on the ballot this year. What would happen if it actually passed? Planned Parenthood's attorney Kevin Paul will explore the legal implications of "Personhood" in this one-hour lunchtime discussion. Bring your lunch, your curiosity, and–if you have any friends who don't know about  Amendment 62–bring them too.

We'll supply drinks and snacks. This event is free and open to the public. Attorneys: one general  CLE credit is available for $10.
