David S. Cohen is Professor of Law at the Thomas R. Kline School of Law at Drexel University. Professor Cohen’s scholarship explores the intersection of constitutional law and gender, emphasizing sex segregation, masculinity, and violence against abortion providers. He also researches voting anomalies in the Supreme Court. Professor Cohen recently published his co-authored Oxford University Press book Living in the Crosshairs: The Untold Stories of Anti-Abortion Terrorism. The book examines how abortion providers are individually targeted by anti-abortion extremists and how law can better respond to this type of harassment. Professor Cohen has also published articles in the Harvard Journal of Law and Gender, Columbia Journal of Gender and Law, George Washington Law Review, Indiana Law Journal, Boston University Law Review, Seton Hall Law Review, and South Carolina Law Review.

About Living in the Crosshairs Every day, men and women who are associated with abortion care are harassed, threatened, stalked, picketed, sent hate mail, and otherwise terrorized. Those who seek help from the law are all too often unsuccessful, largely due to their being insufficient protections built into the law and because law enforcement officials fail to respond. Living in the Crosshairs is a rich and humane portrait of women’s health professionals who persist in their work despite harassment because they believe in what they are doing. In the book, co-authors David S. Cohen and Krysten Connon propose several legal and societal reforms that could improve the lives of providers, foremost among them redefining targeted harassment as terrorism rather than protest.
