The Supreme Court’s June 2022 decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health and the state
The Supreme Court’s June 2022 decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health and the state laws banning abortion that are being enforced and enacted in its wake have implications for privacy that reach far beyond an individual’s right to decide whether to have an abortion. Twenty-first-century technologies, surveillance, our data economy, and the lack of effective privacy protection laws create a post-Dobbs landscape rife with privacy challenges and harms.
Our Data Privacy Day 2023 event, “Privacy in a Post-Dobbs Landscape: Health Data, Technology, Law & Policy,” will explore some of these issues. In our first panel discussion, we will consider reproductive health data, the limited nature of HIPAA and the privacy implications of interoperability mandates; the increasingly important role played by telemedicine and medication abortion for privacy and reproductive health; and the rise of self-managed abortion, criminalization and the associated surveillance of women. In our second panel, partners from three of the country’s leading law firms will discuss the multi-faceted ways in which laws passed in the aftermath of Dobbs are affecting the interests of a broad spectrum of clients and the ways data privacy issues arise in and affect their post-Dobbs practice of law. We hope you will plan to join us on February 3 at the Duke Law School!
