Policing the Womb: Michele Goodwin Takes on Anti-Abortion Laws, Lays Out Reproductive New Deal

As the Supreme Court is poised to strike down Roe v. Wade, Democracy Now! speak with law professor Michele Goodwin, who has written extensively about how the criminalization of abortion policies motherhood. She discusses how on the eve of the court’s oral arguments in the Dobbs case in November, she wrote about how an abortion saved her life. She describes how the U.S. has historically endangered and denied essential health services to Black and Brown women and calls new abortion restrictions “the new Jane Crow,” warning that they will further criminalize reproductive health and encourage medical professionals to breach their patients’ confidentiality and report self-administered abortions to law enforcement.
