American Civil Liberties Union Amicus Brief in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health
Brief filed at the U.S. Supreme Court in support of the Center's challenge to Mississippi's pre-viability abortion ban.
Amicus is the American Civil Liberties Union, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization with nearly two million members dedicated to the principles of liberty and equality.
The brief addresses how Mississippi’s arguments for overturning Roe and Casey conflict with core constitutional principles and misapprehend the Court’s long-standing jurisprudence on privacy, liberty, and autonomy.
This brief argues that the constitutional right to decide whether to have an abortion is firmly rooted in the Constitution and the Court’s liberty jurisprudence, and that there is no principled reason for eliminating that right.
This brief was one of over 50 amicus briefs filed supporting this Supreme Court case, which challenges Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban. For more information on the case, go to Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
