Mississippi has asked the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark ruling that legalized abortion.




Part of Mississippi's argument is that women have made vast economic advancements over the decades.




Experts and research say women would be worse off economically if abortion rights get thrown out.


The Supreme Court could eliminate the nationwide right to an abortion guaranteed to women nearly 50 years ago underA Roe v. Wade a?? and the economic progress of women is at the heart of the case.The state of Mississippi has called on the Supreme Court to throw out abortion rights, and part of its argument is that women have made vast economic advancements since 1973, enabling them to go to work and maintain a family at the same time. Therefore, they argue, the need for an abortion is now irrelevant."The roles of women and men have been altered and workplace and cultural norms have progressed to make it easier for working mothers to balance professional success and family life," Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch said to a crowd outside the Supreme Court as it heard oral arguments on the monumental case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization,A on December 1.Experts told Insider they've drawn the opposite conclusion. They cite a range of research that found abortion legalization has significantly contributed to women's progression by reducing rates of teen motherhood and maternal mortality. It's also increased rates of educational attainment, workforce participation, and salary earnings. If Roe v. Wade is overturned, women a?? and the economies to which they contribute a?? will be set back, they said.
