Judge Blocks Newly-Signed Mississippi Law that Restricts Abortion

Sharing that it is his hope that Mississippi would become the “safest place in America for an unborn child”, Republican Governor Phil Bryant signed HB 1510 on Monday to be effective immediately, decisively banning abortions after 15 weeks of gestation.

Republican House Speaker Phillip Gunn was in high spirits at the bill’s signing on Monday and said: “The winners today are those babies that are in the womb, first and foremost.”

In less than 24 hours later, however, such huge move by Bryant was blocked by a judge. A judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked the law after a request by the state’s only abortion clinic and a physician who also works there.

Dr. Sacheen Carr-Ellis of the Jackson Women’s Health Organization filed the case in court only a few hours after the new law took effect on Monday arguing that a woman 15 weeks or more pregnant was scheduled for a Tuesday afternoon abortion.

The new legislation’s only exceptions are if a fetus has health problems that would make it “incompatible with life” outside the womb at full term, or if a pregnant woman’s life or a “major bodily function”’ is under threat by pregnancy. Pregnancies that were the result of rape and incest are not exempted.

Abortion rights advocates, on the other hand, argued that the new law is unconstitutional because it limits abortion before fetuses can live outside the womb.

Arguments were heard Tuesday before US District Judge Carlton Reeves granted the clinic’s immediate request for a temporary restraining order. Reeves in his brief decision quoted previous legal rulings on abortion and wrote: “The supreme court says every woman has a constitutional right to ‘personal privacy ‘ regarding her body. That right protects her choice “to have an abortion before viability. States cannot ‘prohibit any woman from making the ultimate decision to do so.”

The legal challenge put up by the said clinic can ultimately lead to a supreme court showdown over the 45-year-old landmark Roe v Wade case that legalized abortion in the US in 1973.

Mississippi is the blackest state, so while I despise women's love of babykilling, this will probably do more good than anything.

The courts have been stacked to stop any attempt to save the lives of living humans in the womb. The law has successfully separated life in the womb from life outside the womb. How humanity allowed this to happen is beyond intellectually honest ppl. If a person begins their life in the womb of a woman who has been deceived and has falsely reconciled ending that person life she's caring, that person is murdered by a doctor. And this is the America we live in. It's an evil place and hazardous to the life of the unborn. And law or not, natural law says thou shall not kill-well that's what every woman who's had an abortion has done, no matter what words were used to ease your mind of the truth.
