Dartmouth Statement on Supreme Court Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade

Dartmouth’s commitment to reproductive health care, autonomy, and well-being for every member of our community is unwavering. Dartmouth is fortunate to have a medical school that is deeply committed to reproductive rights for all, including childbearing decisions, maternal health, and their effect on families through its research and education missions. As a medical school focused on training supportive health care professionals, the Geisel School of Medicine will continue promoting better health outcomes and access for women and people from all gender identities. 

Across the institution, Dartmouth will continue to offer insurance coverage to our students and to our employees and their families through a national medical network in support of reproductive health and in compliance with federal and state law. Such care includes pregnancy termination, infertility services, counseling, and family planning. 

Statement from Dartmouth's Geisel School of Medicine on Supreme Court Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade

The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth remains deeply committed to women’s healthcare and reproductive rights for all, including childbearing decisions, maternal health, and their effect on families through our research and education missions. The Supreme Court’s decision may have profound public health consequences and has the potential to exacerbate racial and socio-economic health disparities and put sexual violence survivors further at risk. As a medical school focused on training supportive healthcare professionals, we will continue promoting better health outcomes and access for women and other underserved communities.
