Vice President Kamala Harris will meet at the White House with several state attorneys general to plan out a national defense of abortion rights Thursday.

The meetings come on the precipice of an expected ruling from the Supreme Court that would overturn Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, two landmark cases establishing a right to abortion under the Constitution.

The state AGs are from Wisconsin, Nevada, Illinois, California, Delaware, New York and Washington state, according to Reuters.

SCOTUS is expected to hand down a ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson on Thursday or Friday. A draft majority opinion from Justice Samuel Alito that would overturn Roe and Casey leaked to the press last month.
