Experts from the George Washington University and the National Women’s Law Center will discuss an upcoming Supreme Court case about Mississippi’s ban on abortions. A distinguished roundtable of legal and public health experts will review the history of abortion in the United States and preview the oral argument in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. They will also talk about a recent public health amicus brief filed in the case, which contends that Mississippi’s law and others like it, put women and their families at risk.
