The US Supreme Court appears poised to accept a Mississippi law that would ban abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, even in cases of rape or incest.
In Wednesday’s hearing into the case, conservative justices hinted that a majority backed upholding the law.
A ruling, expected in June, may see millions of women lose abortion access.
Anti-abortion activists are urging the court to “protect unborn children”, but experts warn of an increase in maternal mortality if abortion is restricted.
Both sides of the debate regard this case, known as Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization, as an all-or-nothing fight over abortion rights.
