Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the abortion services legal landscape around the United States changed overnight and is evolving rapidly. The Supreme Court held that the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion and overruled Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey. In response, state laws banning abortion have taken effect, and state legislatures are actively considering new laws related to abortion access.
Alston & Bird’s multidisciplinary team has been tracking these new laws and advising clients—employers, payors, providers, and others—as they navigate the results of the Court’s decision while managing risk across the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
