This direct challenge to Roe v. Wade didn’t reach the Supreme Court by accident. It was the culmination of a detailed plan that was hiding in plain sight.
Actually, that doesn’t do it justice—the deep-pocketed anti-choice movement was begging everyone years ago to listen to exactly how it planned to obliterate abortion rights: by passing a 15-week abortion ban in Mississippi and defending it all the way to a revamped Supreme Court.
On this episode of Boom! Lawyered, Jessica Mason Pieklo and Imani Gandy take us inside that plan to either end Roe or make it “totally irrelevant,” and they explain how it’s snaked its way to the precipice of victory.
