ELSI Friday Forum

March 2024 ELSI Friday Forum: The Impact of Dobbs on Emerging Reproductive Technologies


In 2022 the US Supreme Court Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturned federal protection for abortion. This historic ruling not only relegates this authority to state legislatures but raises the possibility of restrictions on a range of reproductive technologies. Experts that joined this ELSI Friday Forum was reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist Sigal Klipstein and legal scholar and expert on assisted reproductive technologies Judith Daar on the changing regulatory landscape and the use of genomics in reproductive health. They discussed the implications of the Dobbs decision on testing of embryos, including for aneuploidy and single gene disorders, and polygenic disorders and traits, and the jurisprudence surrounding reproductive decision-making. This forum session was moderated by health law and reproductive justice scholar Kim Mutcherson.
