Abortion and Abortion Rights from a Comparative Constitutional Law Perspective
In the recently decided case Dobbs v. Jackson, 597 US __ (2022), the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, 410 US 113 (1973), the landmark decision that had legalized abortion in the United States. As judges, lawyers, scholars, and the others struggle to understand the implications of this suddenly repealed “constitutional right,” we offer a free look at a number of articles which may help shed light on the right of abortion from an international comparative constitutional legal perspective.
