On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court handed down its ruling in the landmark case of Roe v. Wade, giving women the constitutional right to make decisions about their reproductive health. On Wednesday, January 23, the American Constitution Society, the National Women’s Law Center, and Planned Parenthood Federation of America held a panel discussion on the progress that has been made in the 40 years since Roe and the challenges that remain.
