Arguments from International Human Rights Law in the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Abortion Case
The State of Mississippi asked the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Center.

Oral arguments for the Dobbs case will be heard on December 1, 2021. One of the issues that may be raised is whether abortion is an international human right. It is a question of primary importance.
