Heart of LA Democratic Club Statement on Mississippi's 15-week abortion law and the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is hearing testimony on the Mississippi law that bars abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Mississippi's law violates the Constitutional precedent of Roe v. Wade and subsequent decisions establishing our right to obtain an abortion. While we will not hear the Court's decision until 2022, some justices through their line of questioning, indicated that they might rule to uphold Mississippi's law. If this happens, Roe v. Wade and women's right to abortions will be in effect overturned.
Elevating feminist voices and electing women and our allies to serve in public office is as important as ever before, and HLA Dems stays committed to our mission. We fight back together. What You Can Do TODAY:
