NAPW and the Birth Rights Bar Association launch our joint webinar series!

December 19, 2018

NAPW and the Birth Rights Bar Association co-hosted a webinar for lawyers covering the legal arguments and ethical issues at stake when representing someone who is suing after experiencing a forced cesarean surgery or other form of unconsented medical intervention during birth.

The webinar, “Suing for a Forced C-Section Case: Rinat Dray v. Staten Island University Hospital”, was presented by Michael Bast, the lawyer representing Ms. Dray in her ongoing lawsuit against the hospital where she gave birth and the providers who performed cesarean surgery on her over her very clear objection.

This webinar is the first in a series of resources for lawyers and legal workers to gain additional tools and knowledge in cases raising human rights issues in birth.
