Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health FAQs

What is the Mississippi abortion case about?

In Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health, the state of Mississippi will be directly challenging the Supreme Court's 1973 ruling on Roe v. Wade. Mississippi has a state law in place banning abortion after 15 weeks. Jackson Women's Health Organization is challenging this law, asking the Supreme Court to uphold Roe and the so-called right to abortion.

Could Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health overturn Roe v. Wade?

Mississippi's new state law places a limit on abortion at 15 weeks gestation. If the Supreme Court upholds the Mississippi law as "constitutional" then this would overrule Roe v. Wade and allow other states to place limits on Abortion based on fetal age. The Supreme Court has the authority to overturn Roe.
