The Supreme Court will hear a challenge today to a Mississippi law banning abortion after 15 weeks in a case that could have momentous implications for the future of the qualified constitutional right to an abortion recognized in the high court’s landmark Roe v. Wade decision almost a half-century ago.
InÂ Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the last operational abortion clinic in Mississippi is challenging the state’sÂ 2018 Gestational Age Act, which bans abortion prior to the age of fetal viability set by the court inÂ Roe, and updated inÂ Planned Parenthood v. Casey, to around 24 weeks.
Enacted in 2018, the Mississippi law hasn’t gone into effect, as a federal district court blocked its enforcement following the lawsuit filed by the abortion clinic. The conservative Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals later upheld that ruling.
While the abortion law doesn’t make exceptions for rape or incest, it does make exceptions for health emergencies and fetal abnormalities.
