If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice, along with the National Lawyers Guild, Project SANA (Self-Managed Abortion Needs Assessment), and other organizations filed this brief, which argues that Mississippi’s abortion ban places people in a double bind: unable to seek abortions, and at risk of criminalization when they tend to their reproductive health needs on their own. They point to arrests, in Mississippi and around the world, of people accused of ending their own pregnancies, and warn the Court that the threat of arrest deters people from seeking medical help if they need it.
