The abortion case is named after Thomas Dobbs, who says he has nothing to do with it


Thomas Dobbs is the state health officer at the Mississippi State Department of Health. His name appears on the landmark Supreme Court case on abortion rights, despite having "nothing to do with it," he has said.

The “Dobbs” in the case title refers to Thomas Dobbs, an infectious diseases doctor who became Mississippi’s top health officer the same year the state adopted new abortion restrictions.
