U.S Supreme Court to hear arguments in Mississippi abortion case

The Supreme Court will hear arguments this Wednesday in a bid from the state of Mississippi to overturn two landmark decisions on abortion.

The state is asking the court to overrule both the Roe v. Wade decision and the ruling in the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey hearing, which prevents states from banning abortions before 24 weeks of pregnancy.

Justices on the court recently allowed Texas to keep a law banning abortions after a heartbeat is detected, which is usually around six weeks of pregnancy.
