Prof. Carbone Co-authors Article for Bloomberg Law about Traveling for an Abortion After Dobbs

Prof. June Carbone recently co-authored an article in Bloomberg Law with Prof. Naomi Cahn & Prof. Nancy Levit on whether interstate travel for abortion remains legal. The article explains that while the right to interstate travel is not explicitly mentioned in the constitution, "[it] has nonetheless been the subject of longstanding precedents inferred from the structure of the Constitution and related rights such as those promoting interstate commerce or granting privileges and immunities."

Despite this precedent, the future of the right to travel as it pertains to abortion will likely remain unclear for years to come, with the authors sharing that they "expect the Supreme Court to be reviewing these issues for the next decade."
