Madeline Gomez, Hillary Schneller, and Rabbi Koffman.
In December, the Supreme Court heard arguments on a Mississippi law that makes most abortions illegal after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The case is considered a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade, setting the stage for what could be the most consequential abortion rights ruling in decades. Hear about what led to the case and what its consequences are, and how abortion rights and access are fought for through legal channels across America.
