    In January 2020, as we launch a new election cycle, one of the most pressing issues facing the country is the state of reproductive rights and justice. In early 2020, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in June Medical Services v. Gee, a case that will give the newly composed Court its first opportunity to reshape the constitutional law of abortion. This panel will bring together experts in this field to assess the state of abortion, access to contraception, pregnancy discrimination protections, and other issues that shape the landscape of reproductive rights and justice. Panelists will consider these issues longitudinally, focusing on how public opinion on these questions has been shaped by both law and politics. Panelists will also consider the current political moment, focusing on the Trump Administration’s efforts to regulate access to reproductive care, pending cases, and the role that these issues will play in the 2020 election.
