Overturning of Roe v. Wade: What to Know and What's Next? - McDermott

The Overturning of Roe v. Wade: What to Know and What’s Next?

Overview



On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States issued its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization (Dobbs), overturning Roe v. Wade (Roe) and upending 50 years of precedent protecting a woman’s right to privacy in choosing to abort a pregnancy prior to the point of viability.

As discussed in this article, the effect of this decision on US companies will be significant. Any organization whose operations touch family planning services in any way (e.g., providers, those that facilitate operations, investors, payors, employers that provide family planning benefits and health plan service providers) should immediately examine their precise services or benefits, geographic footprint, corporate structure and organizational priorities to identify areas of risk under newly enforced state laws.

To help determine the best steps to take for you and your business, we invite you to join us for the second CLE program in our new webinar series where we will analyze and share the latest developments regarding the reversal of Roe, its likely impacts on US companies, and the post-Roe path forward.
