“Mississippi’s draconian abortion ban – one in a heartbreaking and nationwide assault against women’s freedoms – is unconstitutional.  As the brief makes clear, the constitutional right to an abortion has been resoundingly affirmed: in Roe v. Wade nearly fifty years ago and, again, twenty years later, in Planned Parenthood v. Casey.  As the Court ruled in Casey, re-examining this ‘watershed decision would subvert the Court’s legitimacy beyond any serious question’ and throw into question its commitment to the rule of law itself."
