Any week now, the Supreme Court will release its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the biggest abortion case in decades and essentially Roe‘s last stand at the Court.

In this episode of Boom! Lawyered, co-hosts Jessica Mason Pieklo and Imani Gandy break down everything you need to know about how we got here—from the first filings of the Mississippi 15-week ban being challenged to the confirmation of three justices who created a conservative supermajority on the bench, all but sealing the death certificate for Roe v. Wade.

With the case having the potential to completely change the landscape of abortion access as we know it, only one thing might be certain, as Jess puts it: There’s no chance for a win here.
