After Texas' Abortion Ban, The Supreme Court Faces A New Law From Mississippi

In the wake of Texas’ new law banning abortion after six weeks, many abortion-rights advocates are concerned about a Mississippi law banning the procedure after 15 weeks.

While the law is not currently in effect, the Supreme Court will hear a challenge to it this fall. If upheld, the Mississippi law could threaten access to abortions nationwide.

Here & Now‘s Tonya Mosley talks with Mary Ziegler, legal historian and law professor at Florida State University and author of “Abortion and the Law in America”.
