This session, the Supreme Court is expected to hand down a decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, a ruling that could potentially overturn Roe v. Wade. A draft opinion leaked to POLITICO last month showed the court voted to strike down Roe, but an official opinion has yet to be published. 

CU Boulder experts are available for media interviews to discuss the legal, religious and sociological implications of the anticipated ruling:

Jennifer Hendricks is a professor of law and co-director of the Juvenile and Family Law Program. Her article, "Body and Soul: Pregnancy, Equality, and the Unitary Right to Abortion", explores how our legal tradition’s conception of liberty is based on male experience, which undermines women’s reproductive freedom. She can discuss regulation of pregnancy, abortion and fetal protection.

Samira Mehta is a professor of women and gender studies and Jewish studies. As a scholar of religion, gender and sexuality, she can speak about various religious views on abortion, focusing on Protestantism, Catholicism and Judaism. *Note: Mehta will be unavailable for interviews starting June 16.

Scott Skinner-Thompson is a professor of law with expertise in privacy law, civil rights and constitutional law. His research focuses primarily on the right to privacy and its limited protections for marginalized groups, including women and the LGBTQ+ community. He can also discuss why legal protections for the LGBTQ+ community have expanded over the last two decades, while reproductive choice for women has eroded.
