The Supreme Court Just Fired a Major Warning Shot at Roe


The Supreme Court announced today it would be taking up a case that could completely upend abortion rights.

Back in 2018, Mississippi passed a law that banned abortion at 15 weeks. It was struck down at the district level. Then the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, a notoriously conservative appeals court, struck it down, citing the clear precedent of Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. And if the Supreme Court agreed that this was obviously unconstitutional, they could have easily just refused to take the case.

But they finally took the case.

On this emergency episode of Boom! Lawyered, Jessica Mason Pieklo and Imani Gandy explore what today’s news portends for abortion in America and when we can expect this all to come to a head. They are also joined by special guest Hillary Schneller, the lead attorney on the case from the Center for Reproductive Rights, who explains how this case could determine the extent of the government’s ability to mess with our fundamental rights.
