Legislature Looking at Additional Abortion Restrictions

SHARE NOW

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi’s legislature is trying to restrict the reasons women may seek abortion after federal courts blocked time limitations that the state tried to put on the procedure the past two years. A bill that passed a state House committee Tuesday would prohibit abortions if a woman is seeking one because of the race, sex or genetic abnormality of the fetus. The only exception would be in case of a medical emergency. Other states have been sued over similar laws.
