Episode 51: The Domino Effect of Dobbs

The leaked draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, if officially released by the Supreme Court, would wipe out the federal constitutional right to abortion and directly impact the lives of millions of people. Already, the conservative legal movement is mobilizing to take advantage of the groundwork being laid in Dobbs to put same-sex marriage, contraception, and even interracial marriage in jeopardy. How wide will the impact of the Dobbs decision be and who will be affected? This week, Lindsay Langholz speaks with Kimberly Mutcherson, Professor and Co-Dean of Rutgers Law School, about the potential domino effect of Dobbs.
