Wade?" “How does this impact me in the emergency department?” “Could I go to jail or lose my license?” "Could this impact my interactions with patients beyond pregnant patients?" This session will examine the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and discuss potential impacts on the emergency medicine physician.

Summarize and understand the legal concepts around the Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade.
List scenarios where the emergency medicine physician may be impacted by the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
