CSUN'S annual celebration of Constitution Day September 2022

What Happens After Dobbs?: The Future of Individual Rights in Light of the Supreme Court's Overturning of Roe and Casey

The Supreme Court's recent decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health (2022) overturned Roe v. Wade (1973) and Casey v. Planned Parenthood (1992), ending the federal constitutional right to an abortion. Join our panelists as they break down one of the most consequential and controversial Supreme Court decisions in decades, including the majority opinion, the concurring opinions, and the dissenting opinion. Our panelists will also discuss the implications of Dobbs not only for abortion rights going forward, but also for other constitutional rights such as contraception and same-sex marriage.
