MS lawmakers pass 15-week abortion ban

Mississippi to pass the most restrictive law against abortion in the nation Mississippi bans abortions after 15 weeks, no exception for rape or incest

Planned Parenthood says the MS bill is part of a broader effort by politicians across the country to ban abortion "one law at a time", the organization said in a statement.

"We have providers here who are here to provide care no matter what", she said, "and we're proud to serve Mississippians".

Much like with the legislation that aimed to rewrite the state's public education funding plan, this seems to be another example where bills have been crafted with little input from those that will be impacted the most and without opportunity for debate on the larger scale. The law would take effect immediately, making MS the state with the most restrictive abortion law measured in weeks of pregnancy. One is protecting the health and life of the mother. The state prevents women from getting abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy unless "the woman's life is endangered, her physical health is severely compromised or there is a lethal fetal anomaly", according to the Guttmacher Institute, a research and policy organization.

It's unclear if a 15-week ban will move forward elsewhere.

The ACLU of Kentucky said the bill would bring government interference into the lives of women and points out that similar bans on abortions have been blocked by courts in five states - Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas and Alabama.

The bill could spark a court challenge focusing on whether states can ban abortions before fetuses can survive outside the womb.

State House Bill 1510, which would be the earliest abortion ban in the US if signed into law, was approved by the Senate by a vote of 35-14.

"These bills are not a part of the governor's legislative agenda", stated Gov. Holcomb spokesperson Stephanie Wilson, to the Star. Most of Mississippi's 2 500 abortions in 2015 took place at the clinic. MS state Rep. Andy Gipson, a Republican from Braxton, said lawmakers in Texas, Georgia, and "some midwestern states" are exploring the idea. "We are just saying that this particular brutal type of procedure for abortions should be banned", said Shoemaker.

Before the bill was passed, Derzis said she would sue.

"The real agenda from some state legislators is to ban abortion outright".

Taylor said the Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian conservative legal advocacy group, was among those who vetted the bill's language.

Stone and Forte both said they believe the chances the court will consider a major abortion case are slim as long as the current justices remain, though a case could ascend quickly on an emergency appeal of a lower court ruling.

The likely hope of MS lawmakers is that one of the justices more favorable to abortion rights, such as Anthony Kennedy or Ruth Bader Ginsburg, will have stepped down by the time the state's case reaches the Supreme Court.
