03.22.13 - This newly updated Undue Burden Module serves to break down Casey’s undue burden standard, to analyze its separate components, and to introduce students to a variety of judicial interpretations. It touches on Due Process analysis, First Amendment claims, and many more examples that illustrate how Casey has operated in the lower courts. We hope this module will spur thought-provoking discussion about what kinds of evidence and what kinds of impact are likely to sway a court to conclude that a law creates an undue burden on women seeking abortion; whether the undue burden standard in practice maintains Roe’s central holding that women have a fundamental right to obtain pre-viability abortions; and finally, the impact that restrictions targeting women, their doctors, and their abortion clinics are likely to have on women seeking abortions in the U.S.
