Kathryn Kolbert, The Lawyer Who Argued Planned Parenthood v Casey Before the Supreme Court with Host Richard Levick of LEVICK

Kathryn Kolbert, who has a long and distinguished career advancing women’s rights, spoke with host Richard Levick of LEVICK about her career and the backsliding of women’s rights. Ms. Kolbert, who is the former CEO of People for the American Way and the creator and executive producer of NPR’s Justice Talking, discussed the Planned Parenthood case, a Pennsylvania law that required spousal awareness prior to obtaining an abortion and was found invalid under the Fourteenth Amendment because it created an undue burden on married women seeking an abortion; the Dobbs leak and the likely overturning of Roe v Wade; and the political reality that abortion rights will no longer be found in the courts but only through political action.
