The Supreme Court is seen in Washington, early Monday, June 15, 2020.

The Supreme Court today heard arguments today in Dobbs. v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, a major abortion case over the constitutionality of a Mississippi law that bans abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

The high court's decision could have major implications for the precedent set in 1973 by Roe v. Wade — that women have a constitutional right to an abortion in the first two trimesters of pregnancy when a fetus is unable to survive outside the womb. You can watch the now-concluded arguments below.

Editor's note: This post has been updated to reflect that the arguments have concluded.
