The Supreme Court of the United States has announced it would hear an abortion case from Mississippi and, thanks to Republican court packing which allowed Trump to seat three anti-choice Justices on the Supreme Court, the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision is at risk of being overturned before the end of this year.
The impact would be felt immediately.
Ten states - Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Dakota, Missouri, Tennessee, South Dakota and Utah - have already passed a "trigger law" that automatically bans in-state abortions if the Supreme Court overturns Roe. According to Planned Parenthood estimates, at least another 9 states are likely to act quickly to join them.
The good news is Congress can stop abortion bans and protect a woman's right to choose nationwide right now by making the Roe decision into federal law. Join us in calling on Congress to act by adding your name now >>
