The NFA Daily Spotlight: A Viable Challenge To Roe v. Wade
Former Nebraska Attorney General Don Stenberg joined the NFA Daily Spotlight to discuss an upcoming abortion lawsuit set to be heard in the Supreme Court. Mr. Stenberg—an honors graduate of Harvard Law School—served as Nebraska’s Attorney General for 12 years and argued several major cases at the Supreme Court, including the partial-birth abortion case Stenberg v. Carhart.
In 2018, the Mississippi Legislature passed a fetal pain law that prohibits abortions after 15 weeks gestation, with exceptions for medical emergencies and severe fetal abnormalities. Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization has the potential to upend Roe v. Wade or, at the very least, revise caselaw to allow states to prohibit elective abortions before viability. This case is one of the most substantial abortion-related cases the Supreme Court has heard in decades and could establish a new fetal-pain standard for abortion prohibitions.
