The battle lines over abortion rights have been drawn nationally. This summer, the Supreme Court of the United States is likely to deliver a blow to Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that established a federal right to an abortion, when the justices are expected to affirm a ban on abortions after 15 weeks’ gestation that was enacted in Mississippi. But it is a different lawsuit that is shaping the contours of the fight in Pennsylvania.

In 2019, the Women’s Law Project, along with Planned Parenthood and other organizations, sued the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services over the state’s restrictions on using Medicaid funding for abortions.
