Banned – The Mississippi Case To End Roe V. Wade

A leaked draft Supreme Court opinion suggests the U.S. Supreme Court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, ending the constitutional right to an abortion in the United States.

How did we get here?

Reporter Rosemary Westwood tracks the origins of the Mississippi law that will likely topple Roe v. Wade and its ascent all the way up to the nation’s highest court. Banned follows the stories of the people in Mississippi who got us to this moment, on all sides of the abortion fight, and the story of Mississippi’s last abortion clinic — the last defense of Roe v. Wade. Banned reveals how one Mississippi law defied the odds and how it could reshape the United States.
