(Worthy News) – The Supreme Court announced Monday that it has set a date to hear arguments in a potential landmark abortion case from Mississippi which the state hopes will result in the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
Justices will hear arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health on Dec. 1. This case centers around a Mississippi law that bans most abortions after 15 weeks of gestation. The state passed the law in 2018, but a panel of the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals blocked it from being implemented.
While the law would only impact a small group of women between 15-24 weeks pregnant, the state’s only abortion provider, Jackson Women’s Health, argues that under Supreme Court precedents set by Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, a woman is guaranteed the right to an abortion up until fetal viability, roughly around 24 weeks. [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
