NAPW Submits Testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on the Impact of the Dobbs Decision

We submitted written testimony at the request of the Senate Judiciary Committee as part of their July, 2022 hearing, "A Post-Roe America: The Legal Consequences of the Dobbs Decision." Our testimony covers the devastating impact of the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade. The statement details how abortion bans will also increase the criminalization of pregnancy and pregnancy outcomes other than abortion, including pregnancy loss. It also includes testimony by our former client, Chelsea Becker, who was charged with murder for experiencing a stillbirth. Our board member, Professor Khiara Bridges, also testified at the hearing.
