Roe v. Wade is the most famous case dealing with abortion and reproductive rights. But when you push past all of the political and social commentary, backlash, and fervor surrounding the decision, what actually happened? Learn the issues that brought the case to the Supreme Court, what each side argued for, and what the decision was in this week's episode of So Ordered. We're happy to welcome back to the show Chris Schmidt (Professor at Illinois Tech Chicago-Kent College of Law, Director of the Institute on the Supreme Court of the United States), who provides commentary and guidance after each section of oral argument and a full analysis of the opinion and its effects.
This arc leads up to the beginning of March 2016, when the Supreme Court will hear Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt, a case dealing with abortion law in Texas.
