AHA Announcements

Join us for our free AHA Online event, “Abortion, Choice, and the Supreme Court: History Behind the Headlines,” on Wednesday, July 6, at 3 PM ET.

This AHA Online event brings together four leading scholars to place Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization in historical context. How did we get here from Roe v. Wade (1973)? Why is history central to this jurisprudence and its implications?

  • Melissa Murray, Frederick I. and Grace Stokes Professor of Law and Faculty Director, Birnbaum Women’s Leadership Network, New York University School of Law
  • Aaron Tang, Professor of Law, University of California, Davis School of Law

Moderated by: Leslie J. Reagan, Professor of History, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
