To best understand or act in response to the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision, we need to know the legal, social, and political histories behind it. These include the stakes and limits of different types of Constitutional interpretation; the intents and complex afterlives of the 14th Amendment’s due process protections; and how various state-level bills are now being designed and resisted. Please join professors Joanna Grisinger (Legal Studies) and Kate Masur (History) for an open conversation, led by undergraduate Joanna Hou (Journalism/History), on the pasts, presents, and possible futures of abortion rights in the U.S.
