Abortion-rights advocates sounded the alarm Monday in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to review Mississippi's strict abortion law, setting the stage for the possible end or restriction of abortion rights granted under Roe v. Wade.
Anti-abortion organizations, however, hailed the court's action.
"The most vulnerable among us, babies in the womb, deserve equal protection of the law," Marian Miner, associate director for pro-life and family policy at the Nebraska Catholic Conference, said.
"While it is not clear how far the court is willing to go in this case, we are hopeful for a decision that will affirm that right, embolden states to protect it and finally correct the grave injustice of Roe."
Planned Parenthood voiced the opposite reaction.
"With three Trump nominees on the court, anti-abortion legislatures and governors have become even bolder in their attacks on essential health care," it said.
"More than ever before, anti-abortion politicians seem intent on making abortion access entirely dependent on where you live and how much money you make, an unacceptable way for people in this country to live," Planned Parenthood stated.
