Attacks on Reproductive Justice: From Texas to Roe v. Wade

Republican extremists have been working for decades to overthrow Roe v. Wade, and their success may be closer than ever before. In early September 2021, the Supreme Court let Texas enact one of the most extreme abortion bans in the nation. The law bans abortion at six weeks, before most people even know they’re pregnant, and puts a $10,000 bounty on those who seek to help others receive the abortion care they need. This session focuses on Texas SB 8 and lookalike legislation in other states within the context of coordinated Republican extremist attacks on voting rights, trans rights, and the right to unionize; Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization; the threat to Roe v. Wade; and why we need to expand the Supreme Court.
