Toward a More Perfect Union | The Constitution in Times of Change

A Celebration of Law Day | The Legacy of Roe v. Wade

The Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade holding that a woman’s right to choose to have an abortion is a fundamental constitutional right has been continuously questioned. Subsequent decisions have weakened Roe, including the Court’s 1992 in Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey, although the Court did reaffirm Roe’s central holding that a woman has a fundamental right to choose to have an abortion prior to viability. This term, the Court heard arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which directly presents with the issue of whether Roe should be overruled. This program will explore the implications the forthcoming decision in the case. 

This program was presented in collaboration with the Ramsey County Law Library and in celebration of Law Day.

This CLE is approved for credit through May 25, 2024.
