The Pork Case That Could Rewrite Abortion Law

What’s pork got to do with abortion? As it turns out, everything.

On a new episode of Boom! Lawyered, Jess and Imani are all over National Pork Producers Council v. Ross, the Supreme Court case about pork production and regulation in California—but really, it’s low-key a case about abortion rights. Yes, pork rights are abortion rights.

To understand the interconnectedness, you’ll need to know about the commerce clause and the dormant commerce clause. This is a one meaty episode you won’t want to miss.
