Virtual panel discusses state of reproductive rights in U.S.

A virtual panel discussion, which features Detroit Mercy Associate Professor of Law Catherine Archibald, examines the state of reproductive rights currently in the United States.

The panel is set for Thursday, March 24 at 1 p.m. over Zoom.

In the landmark case Roe v. Wade, the United States Supreme Court ruled that a woman’s right to an abortion was guaranteed by the right to privacy protected in the 14th Amendment.

Now, as the Supreme Court considers the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, our country faces the real possibility that Roe v. Wade will be overturned.

A panel of legal experts discuss the ramifications of a potentially historic decision. The panel features Archiband, Ederlina Co, associate professor of Law at University of the Pacific, and Merissa Kovach, policy strategist at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Michigan.

A brief Q&A session will follow the panelists’ remarks. Participants are asked to register for the discussion prior to the event.
