U.S. Supreme Court Justices are hearing arguments Wednesday morning in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, the most consequential abortion battle in nearly 30 years.
The justices will inevitably decide whether Mississippi’s ban on abortions after 15 weeks gestation is constitutional.
While the high court has considered other abortion cases involving state regulations on abortion, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is unique in that the decision on Mississippi’s law could lead to a groundbreaking shift in the abortion battle.
Listen to live oral arguments:
Many pro-life advocates believe this abortion case is the most important in decades, saying it could even lead to a reversal of the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that invented a right to abortion in the U.S.
The state of Mississippi is directly challenging the precedent in Roe and the 1992 Casey v. Planned Parenthood ruling that holds that states cannot ban pre-viability abortions – those done before a child can survive outside the womb.
