The Supreme Court hears arguments on a restrictive Mississippi abortion law that would ban the procedure after 15 weeks of pregnancy, with some narrow exceptions.

Mississippi, in arguing this case, has asked the court to overrule both Roe v. Wade and the 1992 decision in Planned Parenthood v. Casey that keep states from banning abortion before viability, the stage in a pregnancy when a fetus can survive outside the womb, which happens around 24 weeks.

The Post’s Libby Casey will anchor live coverage from the newsroom, including uninterrupted audio from the courtroom. Reporters Robert Barnes, Rhonda Colvin, Hannah Jewell and Caroline Kitchener will provide analysis. Read more: Subscribe to The Washington Post on YouTube:
