Roe v. Wade is one of the very few U.S. Supreme Court cases that many ordinary people know by name. The landmark 1973 decision made abortion legal in America. Now, a majority of the current court says that ruling was “egregiously wrong,” opening the way for states to restrict abortion or ban it entirely.

Abortion is still legal under current Minnesota law. Could that change? And what does the decision mean for other states and the country as a whole?

MPR News host Angela Davis talks with two law professors about abortion rights and access in a post-Roe world and other implication’s of last week’s ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization.
