Please join us for The Troutt Lecture and a conversation about Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The Dobbs case is front and center right now as it is considered the case that could overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision which created a constitutional right to an abortion before an unborn baby is viable outside the womb. The question in Dobbs is the constitutionality of a Mississippi law banning abortion at 15-weeks. This Mississippi law is in bold defiance of Roe which gives women another two months to legally terminate a pregnancy.

The last time the Supreme Court reconsidered Roe was in 1992 in Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey which upheld the constitutional right to an abortion and created the “undue burden” standard for abortion restrictions. Since the nearly 50 year old Roe decision came down, more than 63 million babies have been aborted in the United States.

The Troutt Lecture program will be a panel format followed by an audience Q&A. We are honored to have as our esteemed guests and panelists: Dr. Albert Mohler, Jr., President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary as Moderator, Gene Schaerr, Founding Partner of Schaerr | Jaffe LLP and Danielle M. White, General Counsel of Heartbeat International. See the bios of our speakers below.
