Abortion may be only the first domino to fall among rights that Americans enjoy, legal experts say.

The Supreme Court’s June 24 decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health marked the end of the constitutional right to an abortion. A 5-4 vote overturned the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, leaving individual states to determine the legality of abortion.

The majority opinion—which was leaked in Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion in May—asserts that Roe v. Wade “was egregiously wrong from the start” and “is not deeply rooted in the nation’s history and traditions.” Roe’s reversal is undoubtedly a monumental moment in Supreme Court history, but does it portend the loss of other rights, as well?

Here, constitutional law experts and professors at NYU School of Law Rachel BarkowPeggy Cooper DavisBarry Friedman, and Noah Rosenblum break down the Supreme Court decision:

In overturning Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court has eliminated abortion as a right protected under the US constitution. What are the implications for Americans’ other constitutional rights?

Rachel Barkow: First, I want to emphasize that I think it’s important to stay focused on the implications of Dobbs itself before turning to the other possible rights at risk. Overruling the right to have an abortion is a cataclysmic change that will harm millions.

It is also true that the logic of the opinion calls into question other rights that rest on the right to privacy, including the right to contraceptives and same sex marriage. Justice Alito tries to dismiss this risk by noting that “nothing in this opinion should be understood to cast doubt upon precedents that do not concern abortion,” but that’s a hollow source of protection. As the dissent notes, “No one should be confident that this majority is done with its work.” And Justice Thomas explicitly says as much in his concurrence—he would reconsider all the precedent that rests on substantive due process.

Peggy Cooper Davis: Some rights that may be at risk are contraception access, parental authority, for example, medical, educational matters, parental custody rights, and choices about medical treatment or termination thereof, and marriage choice. These are just a few examples.

Barry Friedman: The Supreme Court is claiming this decision relates to abortion and won’t impact other rights—but one is entitled to be skeptical, especially from justices who claimed greater fealty to Roe’s status as a precedent during confirmation hearings. This is a radical court with a radical agenda that we have not yet seen unfold fully.
