According to a leaked draft of a Supreme Court majority opinion, Roe v. Wade is slated to be overturned this summer.
--How likely is it that this draft will be the final ruling?
--How did we get here and what does this mean for civil liberties broadly?
--And how will this affect the day-to-day lives of Americans state by state?
We’ll bring together journalists, experts, and practitioners for a robust discussion on possible outcomes.
