WCPO: Next battle over access to abortion will focus on pills

UC law expert in race, gender & social justice discusses the Supreme Court and abortion access

All eyes are on the U.S. Supreme Court which is expected to revisit the scope of Roe v. Wade ruling in 1973, which granted a constitutional right for pregnant women in the United Stated States to have an abortion without undue government intervention. For women seeking abortions, the use of pills sent via mail to induce abortions may grow in importance if the Supreme Court approves its leaked draft opinion that overturns the Roe v. Wade decision and allows individual states to curtail or ban abortion. Jenn Dye, PhD, Theodore M. Berry Director of the Nathaniel R. Jones Center for Race, Gender, and Social Justice, in the UC College of Law, was among the experts speaking about the topic with WCPO journalist Mariel Carbone.
