The Impact of Dobbs on Advertising: Preparing for New Risks

In the post-Dobbs world, where a woman’s ability to get an abortion is left to individual states, dissemination of information about abortion-related services has become crucial to ensuring women can access abortion care. In states where providing or receiving abortion-related services is illegal or severely restricted, however, even just sharing information about the availability of abortion-related services by out-of-state providers can be fraught with risk.

In a new webinar, Manatt examines the potential pitfalls for provider organizations and life sciences companies that market abortion-related services and medications across state lines. The program will help participants understand and navigate a new and challenging legal landscape with wide variability among states. Topics that will be covered include:

  • A landscape assessment of the post-Dobbs world and the new risks for those providing or receiving abortion-related services
  • An overview of state restrictions on advertising abortion-related services
  • A look at how existing laws, rules and regulatory guidance on deceptive advertising practices apply (or could apply) in the post-Dobbs environment
  • A review of advertising policies of social media platforms—and how they may restrict abortion-related advertising
  • The emerging issues around unregulated health data and harvesting that data for ad targeting purposes
