Supreme Court Takes Mississippi Abortion Case
The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear oral arguments for what will likely turn out to be one of the most intensely followed abortion cases in decades: Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The case challenges the constitutionality of Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act, a 2018 law that prohibits abortions performed after the 15-week point in a woman’s pregnancy (with limited exceptions). David and Sarah walk us through the likely outcomes of the case and explain how it fits in with the court’s jurisprudence on abortion related questions. Also on today’s podcast, our hosts chat about Caniglia v. Strom, a separate court case involving the Mississippi Supreme Court, the cicada invasion, and more.
