Join the Arlen Specter Center on Thursday, March 25, from 12:30 – 2pm for “The Future of Roe v Wade,” a Zoom panel discussion. Register here.
In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade ruled that the Constitution of the United States protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose to have an abortion without excessive government restriction. This controversial decision is presently being challenged in many states where laws are being passed that dispute the Court’s ruling. There is a very real possibility that those challenges may come before the Court and that it might overrule its prior decision or extremely limit it. The purpose of the presentation is to provide an expert legal, medical and political panel that explores what rights Roe v Wade recognized, the nature of the controversy, and the consequences of the law being overruled or limited.
