The Supreme Court’s recent decision to strike down the constitutional right to abortion has given new meaning to the concept of a “post-Roe” America. This distinguished panel, consisting of a legal scholar, a historian, and a physician/writer, will reflect on the history of the abortion debate in the U.S., the current legal and political dynamics surrounding the abortion issue, and the impact -- social, medical, and human -- of the Dobbs decision.
