Mississippi Gov. signs 'heartbeat' abortion law

(22 Mar 2019) Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant on Thursday signed one of the strictest abortion laws in the nation — a measure that bans most abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, about six weeks into pregnancy. Bryant's action came despite a federal judge's ruling last year that struck down a less-restrictive law limiting abortions in the state. The New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights called the new measure cruel and clearly unconstitutional and said it would sue Mississippi to try to block the law from taking effect on July 1. After a bill-signing ceremony at the state Capitol, Bryant told reporters that he's not worried about lawsuits. The law that Bryant signed Thursday says a physician who performs an abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected could face revocation of his or her Mississippi medical license. It also says abortions could be allowed after a fetal heartbeat is found if a pregnancy endangers a woman's life or one of her major bodily functions. Mississippi is one of several states that have considered bills this year to ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is found. A federal judge in 2018 struck down a Mississippi law that would ban most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, saying it is unconstitutional. The House and Senate both rejected efforts to allow exceptions for pregnancies caused by rape or incest.
