Bison, How Do You Feel Attending School With No Constitutional Protection To Abortion?

As Welcome Week closes, students must now grapple with class, papers, exams, extracurricular activities, work, and more. What’s more, two global health emergencies (monkeypox and covid-19) and recent restrictions on abortions due to the overturning of Roe v. Wade this summer loom over the Bison college experience.

The Supreme Court’s decision ruled the federal protection of abortion unconstitutional, triggering abortion restrictions in states and citizens challenging those restrictions. Although access to abortion remains legal in the District of Columbia, several students come from states like Texas (2,614), Louisiana (844), Alabama (414), and Missouri (404) with total abortion bans and states like Georgia (3,365), Florida (2,183), North Carolina (1,705) Tennessee (660) and South Carolina (458) with highly restrictive abortion laws. 

The Hilltop is partnering with The Washington Post to learn more about how college students are directly impacted by the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Share your story using this submission box, and a reporter from The Hilltop may be in touch to further discuss your responses.
