The U.S. Supreme Court’s recent Decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was an unprecedented move in which the Supreme Court has for the first time taken away a constitutional right (here the right for a woman to terminate a pregnancy prior to viability of the fetus) instead of broadening individual rights. While opinions surrounding abortion have long been controversial, the Supreme Court’s apparent abandonment of stare decisis and the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade at the earliest opportunity brings into question the intended purpose of the judicial process at the very highest levels in our country. If Supreme Court decisions can be so easily overturned, not due to any advancement in science or knowledge, but merely due to the individual and/or religious leanings of those on the bench, it appears that no case can truly be relied upon in our judicial system. As an Association, we find this troubling, and worry about the Supreme Court’s decision to turn matters of such grave import (including those related to bodily autonomy, equality based on race, religion, sex, etc.) over to state legislatures, in which women and minorities particularly are grossly underrepresented. We fear that the Supreme Court’s decision to leave basic civil and human rights as a matter to be decided state to state will have a staggeringly negative impact on low-income communities and those traditionally sidelined and marginalized in our country. In the coming months, we will be meeting with our sections and committees to determine how as an Association we might address this uncertainty. We hope to support those negatively impacted by this and potential future Supreme Court decisions which may further strip away constitutional rights in a way that will negatively affect our most vulnerable populations. We encourage ideas and suggestions from our members and hope you will reach out to our Bar leadership with your own thoughts.
