2/The case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, centers on a Mississippi law that bans nearly all abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy—a direct challenge to the central holding of Roe v. Wade.

3/The Mississippi brief does not equivocate: the state explicitly asks the Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.

7/It is already difficult for people across the country to access abortions. Abortion rights advocates warn that if the Court allows more restrictions, they will disproportionately impact low-income women, people of color, LGBT people and those who live in rural areas.
