A Conversation with Erin Hawley About the Undoing of Roe v. Wade

Erin Hawley is a graduate of Yale Law School and former law professor who clerked for Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts. She also happens to be the wife of U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R, Missouri). When she took a job as senior counsel to the appellate team at the Alliance Defending Freedom in February 2021, she never imagined that a few months later she would be guiding their legal team through one of the most significant Supreme Court decisions in U.S. history—the case that would eventually lead to Roe v. Wade being overturned. The impact of that victory continues to reverberate in our culture, and in Erin’s view, the backstory of how it happened has God’s fingerprints all over it.
