Abstract

The overturning of Roe v. Wade has created new obstacles for physicians providing reproductive healthcare. Cohen et al. review the new development of abortion shield laws, which some abortion-supportive states have passed to protect physicians from attempts by states with abortion bans to enforce their laws beyond their borders.

Keywords: abortion, shield laws, Roe, Dobbs
