The Big Story: After <i>Roe</i>

The Big Story: After Roe

The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade marks the culmination of a decades-long effort by the conservative legal movement to reverse a half century of federally protected abortion rights. Abortion has immediately become illegal in many states, and the reasoning outlined in the decision puts several other rights and precedents at risk, including contraception and same-sex intimacy and marriage.

Join The Atlantic’s executive editor Adrienne LaFrance, who will lead a conversation between the legal historian Mary Ziegler and the constitutional lawyer David French about this historic moment and what comes next.

You can read Mary Ziegler’s recent writing for The Atlantic, here, and David French’s recent writing for The Atlantic here. David also writes the newsletter The Third Rail for The Atlantic.

The event will take place virtually Wednesday, June 28 at 12:30 PM.
