Consequences of Overturning Roe for People with Disabilities

During a recent rehearsal for an upcoming international webinar on Disability Advocacy Leadership, the following spontaneous conversation took place. While the US Supreme Court’s decision to strip women of the right to an abortion is not a topic on the agenda for the webinar, the issue was raised by the panelist from India, who pointed out the potential international ramifications of the court’s decision. This led to a deeper discussion about the potential impact of this decision on the rights of People with Disabilities within the United States.
