Mississippi imposes 15-week abortion ban; nation's toughest

Mississippi bans abortions at 15 weeks, earliest in the nation

Mississippi law bans abortions past 15 weeks gestation

Not long after Mississippi's governor signed the nation's most restrictive abortion rule into law, a federal judge temporarily blocked it.

Bryant tweeted that he was "proud" to sign the bill and is "committed to making MS the safest place in America for an unborn child".

Additionally, there is only one abortion clinic in the entire state of MS (it's located in Jackson).

U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves heard arguments Tuesday before granting the clinic's immediate request for a temporary restraining order that would block the law during the legal fight.

In a March 16 podcast, Bryant had anticipated the suit against the new but said he expects to win in court, no matter how high the case goes in the courts. Bryant has frequently said he wants MS to be the "safest place in America for an unborn child".

Missing Indian ISIS Hostages Found in Iraq Mass Grave
Khokhon Sikdar, a carpenter, went to Mosul to look for work at a time when the ISIS was taking apart Iraq one city after another. However, Swaraj had stated that it would a sin to proclaim the 39 dead before any concrete proof of their death was found.

"We're thrilled that Mississippi lawmakers are taking a step to protect the basic right to life, as well as protecting maternal health", said Jameson Taylor, acting president of the Mississippi Center for Public Policy. There are no exceptions for incidents of rape or incest. Courts have consistently struck down similar bans on abortion before viability as unconstitutional.

The law and responding challenge set up a confrontation sought by abortion opponents, who are hoping federal courts will ultimately prohibit abortions before a fetus is viable.

The bill also required doctors who perform abortion procedures to file reports of the details and circumstances. The state has only one clinic left that provides services.

Here we go again: Snow, rain to usher in spring
The wind will gust up to 40 miles per hour , with the strongest winds along the east coast of MA , according to forecasters. The snow's weight will likely mean more trees and power lines falling, causing outages throughout the area, Simpson said.

In fact, the only exceptions to law are if the fetus has an issue that is "incompatible with life" or if the mother's life or "major bodily function" would be threatened by carrying the pregnancy to full term. Providers are now required to ask the patient if they want to listen to the heartbeat of the fetus during a state-mandated ultrasound.

"There is no doubt that this unconstitutional abortion ban will harm MS women and families". 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. The defendants were listed as Dr. Mary Currier, the State Health Officer of the Mississippi Department of Health; the Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure; and Dr. Kennth Cleveland, the executive director of the Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure.

"However in countries with restrictive abortion laws, while women might be able to access misoprostol, many don't have access to the information, counselling and follow-up care needed", she said.
