Addressing the Long-Term Social and Economic Impacts of Dobbs: A View from Inside USC

Posted on

On Nov. 16, we hosted the final lecture series event of the fall semester. This event, in partnership with the USC Law & Global Health Collaboration and Center for Gender Equity in Medicine and Science, addressed the impacts of the Dobbs decision and brought together a multidisciplinary group of faculty from across USC to discuss the broad social and economic implications of the US Supreme Court’s decision. Informed by the outcomes of the midterm elections in which abortion is a central issue, USC experts in the fields of law, medicine, social work, sociology and global health provided insight into the current political landscape and the potential long-term ramifications for marginalized and vulnerable communities. This forward-looking conversation drew on the wide expertise of the panelists to consider the concept of solidarity and explore strategies for research and advocacy in this complicated time.
