MS Governor Indicates He Will Sign Latest Abortion Ban.

Jackson, MS — The Mississippi House Public Health Committee voted on Tuesday to approve a ban on abortion similar to the South Dakota law passed by that state last week. The Mississippi bill could be voted on in the full House next week, and if approved, move on to the State Senate.
Yesterday, Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour told reporters that we would probably sign the abortion ban into law if it makes it to his desk.
Mississippi joins South Dakota and an increasing number of states that are attempting to ban abortion at the state level, hoping to force litigation that will challenge Roe v. Wade and restore the legal protections of personhood to the pre-born. Other states include Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
“These are exciting times for those who support the sanctity of human life,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “The current movement to ban abortion in the states and challenge Roe v. Wade is an historic and unprecedented one — and it is picking up steam. We do not believe that Roe can withstand wave after wave of frontal attacks from so many states. We are convinced that an end to child-killing in America though abortion is no longer a possibility, but an inevitability.”
Mississippi has only one remaining abortion mill, The Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which was visited by Operation Rescue in December. (Read Story)
