ED Post Roe

November 05, 2023

In 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion. This decision, known as the Dobbs decision, Overturned Roe v. Wade and ended the right to abortion that had been upheld for decades. In the wake of this decision, many states have passed laws banning or severely restricting abortion. So how does this affect our patients and the care we provide in the ED? How is it different in protected estates compared to restricted states?

Join us for a deep dive into the health implications of recent changes in reproductive health policy with expert, Dr. Amy Paris.
