We've got not one but two abortion cases at the Supreme Court this spring, with the possibility of yet another heavily rewritten reproductive rights landscape.

Welcome back to Boom! Lawyered. Jess and Imani are ready to fill you in on everything you need to know about the latest Court case on EMTALA, or the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act, which requires emergency rooms to treat patients regardless of their ability to pay.

But what about pregnant people who might need life-saving care in states with abortion bans?

Will the justices save pregnant people or state abortion bans?
