Why Dobbs v. Jackson? A History of Reproductive Rights Debates
Efforts to control pregnancy and childbirth have been part of women’s lives for centuries. But over the past 150 years in the US, birth control and abortion access came under increasing legal scrutiny. This history covers the changes and diverse approaches that brought the question of abortion access into the Supreme Court and this moment with Dobbs, another pivotal case in a long history.
Dr. Aimee Loiselle, history professor at CCSU, is interested in the postwar U.S. as a hub for transnational labor, capital and popular culture. She specializes in the histories of working women, gender, and race with attention to both labor and economics. Learn more about Aimee here .
