About the Program

The November 8 midterms are fast approaching, commentators are speculating: What impact will the Dobbs decision have on the elections’ outcomes? It is clear abortion is on the ballot—but how will it influence turnout and decisions in elections that traditionally see lower numbers of voters?

Join our Reproductive Health Law Advisory Team for our post-midterm webinar. Our advisory panel will provide our legal interpretation of these questions, and so much more. We will also delve deeper into the current state of abortion access nationwide and what developments are on the horizon.

Specifically topics our panel will cover, include:

  • The impact Dobbs had on turnout and the balance of power.
  • Likely Congressional and Executive action regarding reproductive health care in light of the election.
  • The outcome of state abortion-specific ballot initiatives.
  • Likely state actions regarding abortion in light of the election outcomes.
  • Public and private enforcement efforts on access to reproductive health care.
