Attorneys from the Women’s Law Project have filed the first-ever amicus curiae brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to reconsider its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the case that overturned Roe v. Wade. The brief was filed on behalf of law professors David S. Cohen, Greer Donley, and Rachel Rebouché in Moyle v. United States, a case that focuses on providing essential medical care to pregnant people at Medicare-funded hospitals. At the heart of the brief is the argument that Dobbs is not “workable,” which means it is inherently flawed and impractical and therefore should be overturned.

“Dobbs has absolutely wreaked havoc on all different kinds of obstetrical and gynecological care, including abortion but far beyond just abortion,” said Susan J. Frietsche, the co-executive director of the Women’s Law Project. “Our brief looks at what happens when states — all of which have different definitions of abortion, by the way — are left without guidance about how to treat obstetrical emergencies.”
