Our Rights Under Threat: What Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Means for People with Disabilities

“Our Rights Under Threat: What Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization means for people with disabilities” takes the discussion a step further and examines the impact the decision will have on all of our rights. Our civil rights are woven together — and when one thread is pulled, other rights can unravel. The Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization will threaten not only our abortion rights, but many other civil rights as well. Dobbs is a case about the right to abortion. But the decision in Dobbs affects a lot of other rights as well. The decision in Dobbs affects rights like:

  • The right to get married
  • The right for adults to have sex
  • The right to get birth control
  • The right to have children

And more.

This toolkit will talk about why these rights are important, and why they are in danger after the Dobbs decision. It will also talk about what we can do to protect our rights.

The toolkit is available in two versions:

  • Our Easy Read edition. The Easy Read version is written in Plain Language. It uses large text and uses images to support the text.
  • A Plain Language version with smaller text and not as much white space.

We are working on an Easy Read version with images as well.

This toolkit was made possible in part by the generous support of the Ford Foundation and the WITH Foundation. No WITH or Ford Foundation funds were used to produce the components of this toolkit which may constitute lobbying.
