SUPREME COURT TO HEAR ARGUMENTS ON MISSISSIPPI ABORTION CASE TODAY

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear the biggest abortion case in decades today, Wednesday, December 1. It centers on a Mississippi law that bans the procedure after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

The Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case has been seen as a direct challenge to the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, which made abortion legal in the United States. Pro-abortion rights activists said a ruling in favor of banning abortions could be detrimental to women’s health.

“If we’re saying patients are denied access to abortion, we’re saying we require you to have a baby and all of the risks attendant in that,” said one activist.

If the Supreme Court sides with Mississippi, it could allow state governments to craft their own laws and policies on abortion rights.
