In an op-ed for the Washington Post, global tennis superstar Billie Jean King tells the story of her own abortion in 1971 and underscores the importance of upholding Roe in order to ensure equality for all. King argues that the Supreme Court case challenging Mississippi’s abortion ban is about more than just abortion – it’s about economic opportunity. The case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, was argued at the Supreme Court on December 1.
