Allison Orr Larsen’s article in @politico on SCOTUS and the uses and misuses of history links to the recent Docket piece by medievalists @SaraMcDougall2 @pardon_mi @KarlShoemaker4 about what the Dobbs majority got wrong https://lawandhistoryreview.org/article/abortion-was-a-crime-three-medievalists-respond-to-english-cases-dating-all-the-way-back-to-the-13th-century-corroborate-the-treatises-statements-that-abortio/

Wanted to highlight this fantastic piece that I accidentally left off the thread the first time around. Dinner's article is superb (and she has a forthcoming book that will be of interest to #legalhistorians) https://twitter.com/TheDocketLHR/status/1536773548991254529

One final article for the special issue is Dr. Deborah Dinner's powerful reflections on the problem of originalist history in Dobbs.

Special issue which includes Mireille J. Pardon,
@SaraMcDougall2 & Karl Shoemaker, “Abortion Was a Crime”? Three Medievalists respond to “English cases dating all the way back to the 13th century corroborate the treatises’ statements that abortion was a crime". #MedievalTwitter https://twitter.com/TheDocketLHR/status/1536756743350411265
