By Jarret Renshaw

(Reuters) – U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris will meet with constitutional law, privacy and technology experts on Tuesday to discuss what will happen if the Supreme Court overturns the Roe v. Wade who legalized abortion nationwide, according to a White House official.

The discussion will seek to highlight real-world implications if Roe falls, including in areas such as privacy, contraception and in vitro fertilization, the official said.

The Supreme Court appears poised to vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, according to a leaked first draft majority opinion which has been vetted by the court, although they warned it may not represent the final official decision, expected in the coming weeks.

Over the past few weeks, Harris has brought together faith leaders and health care providers to discuss their concerns about how to chart a way forward.

Participants include law professors from New York University, Harvard and the University of Michigan.
