Former Congresswoman Marjorie Margolies hosted a fundraiser for Democratic Congressional candidate Dr. Manan Trivedi, with Kate Michelman, former president of NARAL, as the keynote speaker. Michelman recounted her own personal story of trauma and humiliation back in the late 1960s, before Roe v Wade, when she had to appear before a board of male gynecologists and then receive a letter of permission from her estranged husband in order to receive a therapeutic abortion.
Even though Trivedi’s district no longer includes Lower Merion, he is still a favorite of Democratic supporters there.
