My Body, Not My Say: Justice Blackmun's Influential Decision In Roe V. Wade, Kisha K. Patel 2016 Ursinus College

My Body, Not My Say: Justice Blackmun's Influential Decision In Roe V. Wade, Kisha K. Patel

Gender and Women's Studies Summer Fellows

Abortion laws have regulated women’s bodies since the beginning of the country. Many people associate regulation with the case of Roe V. Wade in 1973, in which the Supreme Court ruled that states could not outlaw abortion during the first trimester. Roe v. Wade remains controversial to this day as it failed to establish consensus that women’s decision whether or not to terminate a pregnancy falls within their constitutional right to privacy. Understanding the implications of this decision is fundamental to analyze the debate over the constitutionality of abortion today. This paper examines the opinion written by Justice ...

Marriage, Abortion And Coming Out, Sylvia A. Law, Scott Skinner-Thompson, Hugh Baran 2016 NYU School of Law

Marriage, Abortion And Coming Out, Sylvia A. Law, Scott Skinner-Thompson, Hugh Baran

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

Over the past two decades, legal protections for lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals have dramatically expanded. Simultaneously, meaningful access to reproductive choice for women has been eroded. What accounts for the different trajectories of LGBTQ rights and reproductive rights?

This Essay argues that one explanation — or at least partial explanation — for the advance of LGBTQ rights relative to reproductive rights is the differing degree to which individuals have come out about their experiences with sexuality compared to coming out about experiences with unplanned pregnancies. In particular, as catalogued in this Essay, popular media portrayals of lesbian and gay individuals have ...

Voter Welfare: An Emerging Rule Of Reason In Voting Rights Law, Samuel Issacharoff 2016 NYU School of Law

Voter Welfare: An Emerging Rule Of Reason In Voting Rights Law, Samuel Issacharoff

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

For the first time in at least a generation, the central focus of voting rights law has returned to the issue of eligibility to cast a ballot and the act of voting itself. Unlike in prior generations, the fights over voting are centrally part of a partisan battle for electoral supremacy, and are not organized around perpetuating the historic subordination of minority populations – whatever the localized impact on minorities that the new voting rules may trigger. In the partisan environment, courts face claims of exclusion that only imperfectly map onto constitutional prohibitions of discriminatory intent or statutory protections of minority ...

The Thirteenth Amendment, Disparate Impact, And Empathy Deficits, Darrell A.H. Miller 2016 Seattle University School of Law

The Thirteenth Amendment, Disparate Impact, And Empathy Deficits, Darrell A.H. Miller

Seattle University Law Review

Modern civil rights policy is, as the late Justice Scalia warned, at “war.” On the one hand, some laws, like Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) and the Fair Housing Act, can impose liability for decisions due to their racial impacts rather than their racial motivation. Defendants in such cases can always respond that the challenged decision (a test, a criterion, an allocation) is necessary in some legally cognizable sense; but the courthouse doors open with the prima facie case of disparate impact. On the other hand, the Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause, ever ...


Of Swords, Shields, And A Gun To The Head: Coercing Individuals, But Not States, Aviam Soifer 2016 Seattle University School of Law

Of Swords, Shields, And A Gun To The Head: Coercing Individuals, But Not States, Aviam Soifer

Seattle University Law Review

This Article begins with a brief reprise of what should be a textual “gotcha” about the Enforcement Clauses of the post-Civil War Amendments—if our current Supreme Court Justices actually cared about original texts, originalism, or a combination of the two. Next, the Article focuses on the gnarled issue of “coercion.” It argues that, contrary to a great deal of Anglo-American legal doctrine, coercion is best understood along a spectrum rather than as a binary phenomenon. Coercion is actually much contested and highly contextual across many legal categories. Federal coercion—also described as commandeering or dragooning— has become a particular ...

Originalism And Same-Sex Marriage, Steven G. Calabresi, Hannah M. Begley 2016 University of Miami Law School

Originalism And Same-Sex Marriage, Steven G. Calabresi, Hannah M. Begley

University of Miami Law Review

This article examines the original meaning of the equality guarantee in American constitutional law. It looks are the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth century roots of the modern doctrine, and it concludes that the Fourteenth Amendment bans the Hindu Caste system, European feudalism, the Black Codes, the Jim Crow laws, and the common law's denial to women of equal civil rights to those held by men. It then considers the constitutionality of bans on same sex marriage from an Originalist perspective, and it concludes that State laws banning same sex marriage violate the Fourteenth Amendment.
