Mississippi, who brought this case to the supreme court, ranks the lowest of all states in benefits,has the lowest birth rate, and highest child poverty.

Of the developed countries of the world the US is one of the few without paid maternity leave. There is nothing for post partum mental health care and relatively the same for child care.

The child care credit passed during the pandemic has expired. The Build Back Better Law which included these issues were defeated due to Manchin and Sinema.

If the current supreme court decision passes will Mississippi put their $$ where there mouth is?
