Professor Caitlin Borgmann spoke to the New Republic about Texas’s new abortion law and possible legal challenges: “As the Supreme Court has edged to the right over the past decade, pro-choice litigators have had to weigh the risks of each case they bring or appeal. ‘There’s always a calculus involved,’ says Caitlin Borgmann, a professor at CUNY School of Law who was previously an attorney at the American Civil Liberties Union. ‘Whether you let a bad decision sit there that’s going to affect women, or take it up to court and get a bad decision that’s going to affect even more women,’ there’s no safe route.”
Professor Borgmann has litigated reproductive rights cases and has also spoken and written widely about reproductive rights and given testimony before several state legislatures on this issue. She is the editor of the Reproductive Rights Blog.
