Mississippi law bans abortions past 15 weeks gestation
Governor Phil Bryant is not happy about a federal judge's decision to temporarily block a state law banning abortion after 15 weeks, the most restrictive abortion law in the United States. She was at 15 weeks or more of gestation which, according to the Associated Press, exceeded the time frame during which Mississippi's new law permitted certain abortions.
Reeves did not rule from the bench but granted the temporary restraining order about an hour later.
Bryant tweeted that he was "committed to making MS the safest place in America" for fetuses.
An AP report said that abortion opponents have sought the legal confrontation, hoping that federal courts will ultimately prohibit abortions before an unborn child is viable.
The U.S. Senate failed to pass a 20-week abortion ban bill in January. The state's only abortion clinic and one of the physicians who practices there sued in federal court within an hour, arguing the law violates other federal court rulings saying a state can't restrict abortion before a child can survive on its own outside the womb.
Paul Barnes, a special assistant state attorney general, argued that the law serves Mississippi's "interest in protecting maternal health and the state's interest in protecting unborn life".
Three clinics in Louisiana perform abortions and the process to access the procedure has been heavily regulated by state lawmakers. Gunn told the Associated Press he is proud that MS is taking steps to protect "the most vulnerable of human life"- the unborn. He asked: "Does the state have the right to trump the woman's right to have control over her decisions, over her body?"
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.
Mississippi's governor has signed the nation's tightest abortion restrictions into law.
"We believe this law should be a model for the rest of the country", Jameson Taylor, acting president of the Mississippi Center for Public Policy, said in a statement. Bryant has frequently said he wants MS to be the "safest place in America for an unborn child".
The bill's definition of "severe fetal abnormality" is "a life-threatening physical condition that, in reasonable medical judgment, regardless of the provision of life-saving medical treatment, is incompatible with life outside the womb".
Pro-Choice activists gather outside of the Supreme Court on March 20 during oral arguments in the abortion caseNIFLA v Bercerra.
"There has been no case in which a law like this setting a ban at some point prior to viability has been upheld on the merits in the face of a constitutional challenge", McDuff said.
The law does not exempt pregnancies resulting from rape or incest.
