Kamala Harris, the US Vice President, will have a meeting with experts in constitutional law, technology, and privacy to plan when the Supreme Court overrides its decision on the Roe v. Wade case almost half a century ago. The ruling has so far legalized abortion in the US.
A White House official said they would strive to focus on the implications when Roe v. Wade is upended. It could impinge on issues of privacy, in-vitro fertilization, and contraception said the official.
The court appears certain to upturn the Roe… ruling according to an initial draft opinion supported by a majority of the judges that was leaked, leading to protests across the country. The Supreme Court has confirmed the veracity of the report, though they have maintained that it did not indicate the final ruling expected in a few weeks.
Kamala Harris has got together experts including healthcare providers, legal experts, and faith leaders to talk over their opinion and move forward with the issue.
The official said that the engagement between Kamala Harris and the experts is an extension of the ongoing efforts by the Vice President to convene a broad partnership to protect women’s safety, health, and wellbeing.
