Harvard Law School Rappaport Forum | Stare Decisis and Roe v. Wade



On December 1, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The question presented requires the Court to determine whether to reaffirm or overrule, in whole or in part, its decisions in Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which recognize a constitutional right to previability abortion. This Fall’s HLS Rappaport Forum explored this vital question.

Reva Siegel, Nicholas deB. Katzenbach Professor of Law, Yale Law School
