On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court issued its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, overturning Roe v. Wade, abolishing the federal standard protecting the right to abortion. In the immediate aftermath of Dobbs, many states have raced to pass more restrictive laws against abortions, including some near-total bans. Several states had enacted “trigger bans” that would take effect automatically if the Supreme Court reached this result. Others have sought to reinstate pre-existing laws that had been unenforceable on constitutional grounds. In many states, however, Dobbs will not affect access to abortion because legislatures, courts, or voters have embedded this right in state codes or constitutional provisions.
Seyfarth is pleased to deliver a 50-State Survey of Reproductive Health Services on SeyfarthLean Consulting’s Survey Center. This state-by-state analysis allows tracks state laws and actions with a focus on employer considerations, such as which states criminalize aiding and abetting abortion services, and which states serve as “safe havens” for employers.
Please contact a member of the Reproductive Health Law Advisory Team with questions. The situation remains fluid in many states, and the survey will be updated accordingly.
