#106 - The lawyer defending abortion rights
Today's episode from 1st December 2021. It is a historic day for the US as the most consequential case for decades begins today. It centres on abortion rights in Mississippi and it could re-write the constitution. We take a look at Dobbs Vs Jackson Women's Health Organization, and profile the lawyer tasked with changing the mind of a Conservative leaning Supreme Court. Then later, if you're frustrated with constant prompts raining down on your smartphone, you're not alone. We uncover the reasons why so many of us don't respond to notifications and what you can do about it. The fate of Roe v. Wade, a landmark ruling establishing a constitutional right to abortion, rests on the shoulders of Julie Rikelman. If it were to be overturned, much of the American legal landscape and lived experiences of millions could change overnight. For Bloomberg Businessweek, David Yaffe-Bellany examines Rikelman’s previous cases as she prepares to defend abortion rights before the Supreme Court.
