The Supreme Court ruling will have an impact on abortion rights in the United States.

The US Supreme Court has accepted an appeal against the Mississippi veto on the termination of pregnancy after 15 weeks of gestation in a case that could have consequences throughout the country.

And it is that the verdict can put an end to the legal doctrine on which the right of women to abort in the country is based, known as Roe vs. Wade.

The case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, challenges the constitutionality of abortions done after the 15th week.

The high court must decide in the coming months whether the fetus is viable outside the womb after 15 weeks.
