Featuring Geoffrey R. Stone, JD’71

How have attitudes toward contraception and abortion evolved over time? How has the Supreme Court come to play a central role in defining these fundamental rights of American citizens? And what is the future of these rights with the prospect of a possible succession of Donald Trump appointments to the Supreme Court?

Drawing from his new book, Sex and the Constitution, legal scholar Geoffrey R. Stone, JD’71, traces the complex and fascinating relationship between sex, religion, and law from the ancient world to the present.
