Local 12 News: Abortion ruling bringing out midterm voters
UC Law expert discusses the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court Dobbs’ ruling on elections
Jenn Dye, PhD, director of the Nathaniel R. Jones Center for Race, Gender and Social Justice, spoke with Local 12 News about the impact the U.S. Supreme Court Dobbs’ ruling may have on midterm elections. She told viewers that the ruling seems to be igniting new energy at the polls. The election happening just three months later is drawing more importance to races happening down the ballot.
In October, Dr. Dye organized at UC Law a daylong colloquium, “Reproductive Rights Post Dobbs.” Panelists during that event shared their thoughts about the legal, reproductive and community impacts of the High Court’s latest ruling on abortion. Dye says voters must educate themselves about candidates before hitting the polls.
