Mississippi asks the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade



“The conclusion that abortion is a constitutional right has no basis in text, structure, history, or tradition” Attorney General Lynn Fitch told the justices in a new brief, launching the opening salvo in the most important abortion-related dispute the court has heard in decades.

Fitch said that the case for overruling Roe is “overwhelming.”

Roe v. Wade is the 1973 landmark Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion nationwide prior to viability, which can occur at around 24 weeks of pregnancy.
