Mississippi's Governor Has Signed The Nation's Most Restrictive Abortion Ban Into Law

Bryant said Monday that he is proud to sign the bill that afternoon.

MS became the first state to ban abortions after 15 weeks in pregnancy after its Republican Gov. Phil Bryant signed the measure into law Monday.

"Politicians are not above the rule of law, and we are confident this risky bill will be struck down like every similar attempt before it", Center for Reproductive Rights President and CEO Nancy Northup said in a statement obtained by the AP.

The U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion in its 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.

Mississippi's only abortion clinic says it plans to sue.

MS moved quickly toward a legal confrontation over the nation's most restrictive abortion law Monday. MS is recognizing the global medical and scientific consensus on this issue.

In 2016, the high court refused to uphold an Arkansas law that banned abortion after 12 weeks' gestation as well as a North Dakota six-week law. The Washington Post reports that the state's only abortion clinic has already filed a lawsuit, and one of Mississippi's federal courts has already scheduled a Tuesday hearing, which could result in the law being blocked. Bryant hopes to make his state "the safest place in America" for unborn babies by supporting a bill to ban abortions after 15 weeks.

It was unknown how Trump Jr. or O'Day had taken the "split" since it was mentioned things got serious. O'Day and Trump Jr.'s affair allegedly ran from the end of 2011 to March 2012.

House Speaker Philip Gunn was present for Bryant's signing. About 2,500 abortions were performed in the state a year ago, with a lot of them taking place at the clinic.

The lawsuit challenges House Bill 1510, saying federal courts have ruled women have the right to an abortion before a fetus can live on its own outside the womb.

House Speaker Philip Gunn, who witnessed Bryant's signing ceremony, told The Associated Press he is proud MS is taking steps to protect "the most vulnerable of human life: the unborn". House Bill 1510 became law immediately upon Bryant's signature. "We are saving more of the unborn than any state in America", said Gov. Bryant. "I am committed to making MS the safest place in America for an unborn child, and this bill will help us achieve that goal", Bryant tweeted Monday.

MS previously tied with North Carolina for the nation's strictest abortion limits at 20 weeks.

Republican Gov. Phil Bryant signed House Bill 1510 on Monday afternoon. The bill would prohibit abortions after 15 weeks except when there are risks to the life or physical health of the mother, or fatal fetal anomalies.

Abortion rights groups say anti-abortion organizations could use the legal case to test the limits of abortion all the way to the Supreme Court.

The only exceptions are for fetuses with health problems that make them "incompatible with life" or pregnancies that might threaten a woman's life. The owner of Mississippi's only abortion clinic opposes the law and has pledged to sue.
