Opinion: Protecting and broadening Maryland’s access to abortion care

July 13, 2022

The Supreme Court in Dobbs held there is no constitutional right to abortion. From now on, federal courts will apply a deferential level of review and uphold most state bans or restrictions. What does this mean for people in Maryland? While much has been said about Maryland’s abortion-protective laws, more needs to be done to ensure long-lasting protection. Many states have banned or are poised to ban abortion with severely limited exceptions. Anti-abortion groups are drafting proposed state laws to preclude residents from accessing abortion care in other states.
