Abortionists Want to Block New Mississippi Law

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — An abortion-rights group wants to block a Mississippi law that will ban most abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, about six weeks into pregnancy. Governor Phil Bryant signed the heartbeat bill last week and it is set to become law July 1st. The Center for Reproductive Rights has expanded a lawsuit it filed last year to challenge a Mississippi law banning abortions after 15 weeks’ pregnancy; a federal judge declared that law unconstitutional. A Kentucky law banning abortion after the detection of a heartbeat was immediately challenged by the American Civil Liberties Union and blocked by a federal judge.
