Roe v. Wade and the Future of Abortion in the United States
Almost fifty years after the landmark Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, the right to abortion continues to be under attack. In 2021 alone, more than 500 abortion restrictions were introduced in 44 state legislatures, many with the aim of providing a vehicle for the Supreme Court to overturn Roe. This panel will consider how likely the new 6-3 conservative majority Supreme Court is to overturn this long-standing precedent and what impact this would have on the United States and the role of cis women and gender expansive people in society. Panelists will consider cases currently pending before the Supreme Court, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a challenge to a Mississippi law outlawing abortion after 15 weeks and argued on December 1, 2021, and the two cases challenging Texas’s ban on abortion after 6 weeks, Whole Women’s Health v. Jackson and U.S. v. Texas, which were argued on Nov. 1, 2021, and which are likely to be appealed again in a future Supreme Court term.

Panelists will consider what a post-Roe US might look like for clinics, abortion seekers, and funds, drawing on the history of abortion access pre-Roe, and reviewing federal legal, legislative and administration strategies currently being employed.
