US Supreme Court poised to limit abortion rights

The questions and comments from the justices as the United States Supreme Court heard arguments Wednesday on a challenge to a Mississippi law barring most abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy appeared to signal that the conservative majority will allow the controversial measure to stand.

What remains unclear, however, is whether five of the six conservative justices on the nine-member court are ready to take the additional step of overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that made abortion legal nationwide.
