The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments in Mississippi case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that evaluate whether state laws that ban pre-viability abortions are unconstitutional.
This comes after the Supreme Court’s unwillingness to block SB 8 – the Texas Abortion Ban. This case poses a severe threat to Roe v. Wade as it directly challenges the 1973 ruling that declares that a woman has a constitutional right to terminate a pregnancy in the first six months of her pregnancy, when the fetus is incapable of surviving outside the womb.
The Supreme Court’s agreement to review the Mississippi 15 week abortion ban unquestionably threatens nearly 50 years of Supreme Court precedent and is a test case to overturn Roe v. Wade.
