  • Mississippi bans abortions at 15 weeks, earliest in the nation

A USA federal judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked a MS law that enacted the tightest restrictions on abortion in the United States, in a ruling handed down a day after the governor signed the measure.

"I am committed to making MS the safest place in America for an unborn child, and this bill will help us achieve that goal", Governor Bryant wrote on Twitter after signing the bill.

Reeves said in court that the "ultimate question" is whether a state can ban abortion before viability.

"The Supreme Court says every woman has a constitutional right to "personal privacy" regarding her body", U.S. District Court Judge Carlton Reeves in Jackson, Mississippi, said in a two-page ruling that quoted from the high court's 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion.

"We are protecting the unborn children of this great state, many of whom are minorities, many of whom are female, obviously many that are at 15 weeks are moving in their mother's womb", Bryant said on Perkins' radio show. In Mississippi, "78 abortions in 2017 when the fetus was identified as being 15 weeks or older". He told The Associated Press he is proud MS is taking steps to protect "the most vulnerable of human life:" the unborn.

The law does not exempt pregnancies resulting from rape or incest. That bill enacted stricter requirements for abortion facilities, including a requirement that all physicians associated with an abortion facility have the right to admit patients to a local hospital. Barnes noted the "gray area" in balancing a state and a woman's rights in abortion cases, especially in the area of viability.

The governor of MS has passed a bill that allows for the strictest abortion law the USA has witnessed. He says MS is "saving more of the unborn than any state in America". Physicians who perform abortions must be board-certified or -eligible obstetrician-gynecologists, and the state requires women seeking abortions to receive in-person counseling and wait for a 24-hour period. "There are only a few clinics left to serve patients who need abortion care even as we speak, and with HB 1510 targeting the lone remaining clinic in MS, a scarce health service will become even more so".

Some legal experts have said a change in the law is unlikely unless the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court changes in a way that favors abortion opponents. Providers are now required to ask the patient if they want to listen to the heartbeat of the fetus during a state-mandated ultrasound. As recently as 2011, there were seven abortion providers in Louisiana, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a pro-abortion rights group that tracks state laws and abortion providers nationwide. So even though Mississippi's previous ban on abortions started after 20 weeks, it effectively meant it started at 18 weeks by the methods used in other places. "And if we go all the way to the Supreme Court, we are willing to do that", he said.

The afternoon the bill was signed, a member of the 40 Days for Life prayer team stood at the entrance to Jackson Women's Health Organization.
