Race and the Reality of Reproductive Rights in the United States

Ortiz, Sol; Mitsinga, Lise; Bopanna, Sruthi

Since the recording of this episode, an unknown individual leaked the Supreme Court’s draft in the Dobbs v. Jackson case. Written by Justice Alito, it appears to overturn Roe v. Wade. The leak of this draft has caused ample movement from reproductive rights and reproductive justice organizations. It has also emboldened anti-abortion states.

As a Supreme Court press release clearly affirms, while the document is authentic, “it does not represent a decision by the Court or the final position of any member on the issues in the case.” It is important to note that abortion is still legal in the United States and that the final Supreme Court opinion has not been released.
