Mississippi Senate Passes Abortion Ban

Thirty-five to four was the vote today when Mississippi State Senate passed Senate Bill 2795, a ban on all abortion, except in instances of incest, rape, or endangering the women’s life.

A similar bill died on the Mississippi House floor in March 2006 when Alan Nunnelee, Republican Chair of the Senate's Public Health and Welfare committee, refused to sign the bill because of its wording. Nunnelee stated about this bill that it, “in no way regulates young women. It regulates the folks making money off young women.

“The senate has certainly expressed the will of the people by passing [the ban]," Tanya Britton, president of Pro-Life Mississippi told LifeNews.com.

They also passed two additional laws that would make abortion harder to obtain and more unappealing. The first requires doctors to offer women seeking an abortion the chance to see the unborn baby by ultrasound and hear the baby’s heartbeat. The second law requires parental consent or a judicial bypass for minors.

If enacted, this ban will prove to be a major setback to abortion supporters and a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade.
