Anti-abortion activists displayed their patriotism Wednesday in front of the Supreme Court.
A large group sang the national anthem while demonstrating outside the high court. Justices will hear oral arguments on Wednesday for Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which focuses on a Mississippi law that bans most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
Many of the singing protesters carried signs with messages such as "life is worth it" and "call me an extremist, but I think dismemberment is wrong."

Many believe the case could challenge Roe v. Wade, which would affect abortion access nationwide. Justices will decide whether the 2018 Mississippi law banning the procedure is constitutional. Since the 2018 decision, lower courts have ruled to prevent the law's enforcement, effectively opening the period for an abortion to about 24 weeks gestation.

Dobbs has exceptions for when the fetus has a condition that is "incompatible with life" or when the pregnancy is a threat to the mother's life.
