Nevertheless, it’s very good news that the United States Supreme Court announced earlier today that they’ve agreed to review Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
At issue is a Mississippi law that bans abortion after 15 weeks.

History tells us not to pin our hopes on the court in cases like this.
