This Episode – June 24,2022

On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned its past rulings that granted a constitutional right to an abortion. While five conservatives on the Court supported overturning Roe, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in a concurring opinion that he favored upholding the Mississippi law without fully overturning the 49-year precedent. The three liberals on the Supreme Court issued a rare three-justice-authored dissent.

In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, legal reporter Amelia Thomson-DeVeaux speaks with Galen Druke about the arguments behind the justices’ opinions, where the legal debate goes next and how the decision contrasts with most Americans’ opinion on abortion.
