Tiffany Jeffers, associate professor of Law, Legal Practice at Georgetown University Law Center joins Caitlin Malcuit to discuss what the leak of the SCOTUS opinion on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health means for the future of abortion rights in the United States. The draft indicates the impending overturn of Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood of SE Pennsylvania v. Casey. 
Tiffany Jeffers can be found on the Georgetown Law Center website and on Twitter @lawproftj. Tiffany is also the resident legal analyst on Farai Chideya's podcast Our Body Politic. Also listen to our chat with Jeffers about voting rights last year.
