Understanding Pregnancy-Related Charges in Criminal Law 2024

Product ID: CA3660W
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Co-produced by the Center for Integrity in Forensic Sciences and State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE®

Post-Dobbs dilemmas 

Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs, people seeking abortions or reproductive health care and their providers have faced legal uncertainty and, in some circumstances, prosecution. An Ohio woman who miscarried at home and suffered from life-threatening hemorrhaging faced being charged with “corpse abuse,” until a grand jury declined to indict her.1 Current laws in states like Georgia and Florida now give prosecutors tools to surveil, investigate, and prosecute people seeking abortions and those who self-manage abortions.2 And several states have granted personhood status to unborn children in utero and fertilized eggs.3 

At Understanding Pregnancy-Related Charges in Criminal Law, medical and legal practitioners will provide a survey and analysis of laws from states across the country dealing with miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, and contraception.
