The conservative-leaning Supreme Court heard oral arguments on a case concerning a Mississippi law that bans abortions after 15 weeks, according to CNN.

The justices are being asked to uphold the ban and overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision legalizing abortion nationwide prior to viability, which can occur at around 24 weeks of pregnancy.

A Supreme Court decision that overturns the ruling could bring abortion bans to as many as half the states in the country already poised to prohibit the procedure.
