Berkeley Law scholars submit amicus curiae briefs in Supreme Court abortion case

Melissa Murray and Claudia Polsky interviewed by The Daily Californian, Feb. 22, 2016

“Laws that unduly target access to reproductive health services compromise the dignity of women and impair their ability to participate in society as equal citizens,” Murray said in an email.

“I feel like millions of women are in peril of losing rights that we’ve taken for granted for a few decades,” said Claudia Polsky, a Berkeley Law assistant professor and director of Berkeley’s Environmental Law Clinic. Polsky was one of 113 women in the legal profession to sign an amicus curiae brief in which they detailed their experiences with abortion.
