Abortion Debate Reaches Crescendo at Supreme Court (Podcast)

Nov. 30, 2021, 8:32 PM

The case that could overturn the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision that recognized abortion as a constitutional right will come before the nine justices tomorrow morning.

On today’s episode of On The Merits, our weekly legal news podcast, we explain the stakes behind Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health and why abortion rights activists are so pessimistic about their chances to even maintain the status quo. We’re joined on the podcast by Kimberly Robinson, Bloomberg Law’s Supreme Court reporter and, due to social distancing restrictions, one of the few people who will actually be inside the courtroom for Wednesday’s arguments.
