As one of the most consequential decisions in the history of the Supreme Court, Roe v. Wade articulated the right to abortion as a fundamental right. But where did this landmark case originate? In Part One of a three-part documentary series, six law professors discuss how and why Roe v. Wade made it to the Supreme Court, in the video published on Oct 16, 2019, “Roe v. Wade: A Legal History| Part One: To the Court“, below:
Though it is not explicitly mentioned in the Constitution, the concept of a fundamental right to privacy played a key role in the arguments in Roe v. Wade. How did the Supreme Court advance from the right to privacy to the right to abortion? Six law professors explore the legal foundations for Roe v. Wade, in the video published on Oct 23, 2019, “Roe v. Wade: A Legal History | Part Two: The Right to Privacy“, below:
A deep dive into Roe v. Wade, a 1973 Supreme Court case that extended the right of privacy to a woman’s decision to have an abortion, while recognizing compelling state interests in potential life and maternal health. In this video, Kim Kutz Elliott discusses the case with AUL Senior Counsel Clarke Forsythe and Professor Melissa Murray.

For each provision of the Constitution, experts from different political perspectives coauthor interpretive explanations when they agree and write separately when their opinions diverge, in the video published on May 1, 2018, “Roe v. Wade| Civil liberties and civil rights| US governmhttps://constitutioncenter.org/ent and civics| Khan Academy“, below:
The Khan Academy video above demonstrated that the decision to legalize abortion in Roe v. Wade was based on the right of privacy, which the court has inferred from the due process clause of the 14th amendment. Since the Roe decision, a number of other cases have set limits on abortion and abortion clinics. Clark Forsythe argues that the Supreme Court has failed in regulating abortion and that the issue should be returned to the states. Melissa Murray, by contrast, suggests that the decision in Roe was crucial in giving women the freedom to join the work force and make decisions about when to have children.
So, my question is: whatever happened to Let Sleeping Dogs Lie? Now, we will be facing an even more polarized nation and lessened faith in any future Supreme Court decisions. Furthermore, Americans will now question the future of rights to: gay marriages, use of contraceptives, to decide whether or when to have children, or to think for oneself without government interference, etc.

Wade made it to the Supreme Court, the legal foundations for the case, and its impact on the American legal system, in the video published on Jan 22, 2021, “Roe v. Wade: A Legal History“, below:
