Abortion Rights in a Post-Roe World

In this talk, Professor Shoshanna Ehrlich will discuss how Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization – the decision that overturned Roe v. Wade – came about, what it means for those living in abortion-hostile states, and how states like Massachusetts are reacting to the decision by seeking to expand and protect abortion access. Professor Ehrlich will offer an up-to-date picture of the current crisis over abortion access in the wake of this dramatic reconfiguration of the legal landscape. This virtual program is for adults and teens and will include a Q&A.
