We are at a pivotal moment in the fight for reproductive freedom as the U.S. Supreme Court deliberates over Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case about Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban that directly challenges Roe v. Wade. There is no path for the Supreme Court to uphold Mississippi’s ban without overturning Roe’s core holding. If Roe fell, at least 28 states would likely take action to prohibit abortion outright. A state’s attorney general is the top legal and law enforcement officer for the state they represent, and they represent the state in lawsuits and issue legal advice to state agencies. If Roe is overturned this summer, attorneys general will play a major role in determining what abortion access looks like at the state level.
