    Meet the Attorney Who Will Argue the Mississippi Case Before the Supreme Court

    Everyone is FREAKING out that the enemies of reproductive freedom installed onto our Supreme Court have decided to hear a Mississippi case that could end Roe v. Wade, the precedent that has protected legal abortion in this country for almost 50 YEARS! In this FBK Newsbreak, your Feminist Buzzkills interview Hillary Schneller, the lead attorney from the Center for Reproductive Rights who will be arguing against this case before the Supreme Court on December 1, 2021. In preparation for December 1st, we did an interview back in May with Hillary, aka THE person who could help teach us all what's at stake and what we can do to support Mississippi and protect our right to decisions about OUR BODIES.

    Lead Attorney from the Center for Reproductive Rights (@reprorights) arguing the Mississippi Case



    Quick Hits:

    The Mississippi Case



    Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health will argued at SCOTUS on December 1, 2021



    Hillary Schneller Introduction



    Hillary Schneller is a senior staff attorney at the Center for Reproductive Rights (@reprorights) who will be the LEAD attorney challenging the Mississippi case at SCOTUS 



    Meaty Story: 

    Facts of Mississippi’s case breakdown by Hillary Schneller



    2018 – Mississippi originally passes the 15-week ban 

    Explicit purpose of this ban – to provoke SCOTUS to take a case that would challenge Roe v. Wade which has protected legal abortion in the US since 1973

    Immediately blocked by the lower court & 5th circuit court of appeals

    June, 2021 – SCOTUS agrees to hear Mississippi case



    What is at stake?



    “The state chose to pass a law it knew was unconstitutional to endorse a decades-long campaign fueled by national interest groups to ask the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade” – US District Court Judge Carlton Reeves

    If overturned, many states will follow Mississippi’s lead in successfully passing anti-abortion bans

    10+ states have “trigger” bans in place which will end abortion within 24 hours as soon as Roe is overturned



    What can you do?

    The Disgusting Lack of Repro Healthcare for the Incarcerated with Dr. Michele Goodwin - Part 2

    It’s another Feminist Buzzkills News Break! Part 1 of this vital conversation introduced y'all to the overall lack of healthcare for incarcerated women in the US. So, hop back in with us for Part 2 as we tackle a closer discourse on access to abortion care in prisons and the specific challenges faced by incarcerated undocumented folks. Joining us with her expertise (and unstoppable glasses game) in discussing the intersection of healthcare and this country’s racist, sexist, inhumane prison system is multi-hyphenate Badass, Reproductive Justice scholar and fighter, Chancellor’s Professor at UC Irvine, ACLU board member, author of Policing the Womb, podcast host of Ms. Magazine’s “On the Issues with Michele Goodwin,” and so much more – Dr. Michele B Goodwin!!

    Special Guest: Dr. Michele Goodwin @michelebgoodwin



    Chancellor’s Professor at UC Irvine, Author of Policing the Womb, podcast host of “On the Issues with Michele Goodwin,” ACLU Board member



     

    Meaty Story / Dr. Michele Goodwin shares her knowledge: 

    Marie brings in the Nebraska news story



     Nebraska inmate sues for right to get abortion



    Marie’s questions for Dr. Goodwin — If someone is pregnant and is incarcerated/being held, do they always need to fight for care like this? Are there states with better track records regarding incarcerated pregnant folks?



    This happens often & in other states as well

    California has a Reproductive Privacy Act written into its constitution

    New York has a Reproductive Health and Privacy Act



    This past decade has had a dramatic uprise in TRAP Laws:



    From 2010-2013, there were more anti-abortion laws that were proposed and enacted than in the 30 years prior, COMBINED!!!



    Lizz’s questions for Dr. Goodwin —  As we see the intersection between anti-abortion extremists, White supremacy,Christian extremists, and law enforcement, are those who are working inside the prison system just straight up ignoring this pregnant person’s request for an abortion or reproductive care? 



    “To put it quite simply, that is absolutely what’s happening” – Dr. Goodwin



    Jane Doe Abortion Case (2017-2019)



    ****HORRIFYING FACT ALERT (Opposite of a Fun Fact)!!!****



    The judge who wrote the dissenting opinion on the Jane Doe case, is Brett Kavanaugh of the Supreme Court





    Brigitte Amiri, along with the ACLU, played a critical role in this case

    Brigitte Amiri’s Deposition of Scott Lloyd & the horrors of Refugee Resettlement



    Pauli Murray & Jane Crow



    She wrote about the intersectional harms of race & sex, 1930’s 

    The state surveillance of incarcerated pregnant women
