There’s no sugarcoating it, folks: We’re in the bad place.

In this emergency episode of Boom! Lawyered, co-hosts Jessica Mason Pieklo and Imani Gandy bring you everything you need to know after Politico published a draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that fully reverses Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. After the recording of this episode, Chief Justice John Roberts released a statement that verified the authenticity of the opinion.

It’s full chaos, and there’s no one like Jess and Imani to help you understand what it all means and where we go from here.
