The Supreme Court began hearing oral arguments this month on the constitutionality of Mississippi’s ban on abortions past 15 weeks in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health case. In their Left and the Law segment, Jan Haaken and Mike Snedeker take up this case and the legal reasoning and precedents invoked in this upcoming Supreme Court decision, as well as the likely impacts of overturning Roe v Wade.  Jan and Mike also discuss how this historical period differs from earlier eras of struggle around abortion rights.
