In less than a week, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt. It's a case that could impact women's access to state-regulated abortion for many years to come.

It's unclear how the court may rule, especially with it's new makeup. With the death of Antonin Scalia, it appears the justices are split 4-4. President Obama is trying to fill the seat before he leaves office, but the political battle over the nation's high court has already begun. 

In addition to uncertainty on the court, reproductive health advocates are watching  the fight for the White House.

Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, joins The Takeaway to discuss why women's health issues are at a crossroads, between the 2016 election, and the Supreme Court.
