A Voice for the Kids

SCOTUS, CDC, and CHILD USA

July 7, 2022

What does the Dobbs decision mean for our kids? How does the CDC support our fight for the civil rights of children?

In this episode, Prof. Marci Hamilton is joined by CHILD USA Social Science Director AJ Ortiz and Research and Development Intern Sarah Bousquet to discuss the impact that the Dobbs decision will have on reproductive rights for children affected by teen pregnancy and abortion bans following the Supreme Court's overruling Roe v. Wade.

AJ and Sarah discuss the current facts and potential impact this will have on children and what we must understand navigating this post-Roe world.
