Protecting Women’s Reproductive Rights.
The Supreme Court’s decision in the Dobbs vs. Johnson case will inflict enormous harm on millions of people’s lives in every corner of the country. Moreover, people of color and low-income people will disproportionately feel the impact, as we have already seen in Texas where the Supreme Court has banned abortions since September. As a result of the Supreme Court decision, abortions could be immediately banned in over two dozen states and will be severely restricted in others. Those states that protect abortion rights and have providers that perform abortions will be inundated with pregnant women traveling from states with bans in place. This session will bring together stakeholders to discuss strategies and tactics to fight back against these attacks on women's rights
