Making Sense of a Post-Roe Louisiana

Tuesday, June 28, 2022 - 12:00pm

Online

On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its ruling overturning the landmark Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in this country. As a result of this decision, Louisiana has enacted a state law banning abortions except in instances where the pregnant person’s life is at risk or the fetus is “medically futile,” including an ectopic pregnancy. For many, this ruling has cast a shadow of uncertainty over how their time at Tulane and in Louisiana could be impacted. Both Newcomb Institute and the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) acknowledge these feelings and the potential impacts of this decision across our campus, especially for women, BIPOC communities, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and the economically disadvantaged. 

As we all prepare to navigate this post-Roe landscape, our offices would like to provide a space for our community members to learn more about this decision, its short and long-term impacts, and the work fellow Tulanians are doing related to this issue. We ask that you join us tomorrow Tuesday, June 28th at noon for Making Sense of a Post-Roe Louisiana, where faculty from Newcomb Institute, EDI, School of Medicine, School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, and School of Liberal Arts and will be discussing their research findings and sharing upcoming opportunities to learn more.
