Mississippi Senate passes nation's most restrictive abortion ban,
After a heated floor debate, the Senate on Tuesday passed a bill 35-14 to ban abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, bringing the state one step closer to enacting the most restrictive abortion ban in the country.
In a statement Gov. Phil Bryant reiterated his support for the measure.
"I have repeatedly said, I want Mississippi to be the safest place in America for an unborn child," Bryant said. "House Bill 1510 will help us achieve that goal, and I encourage the House to pass it and look forward to signing it.
Those sentiments were echoed by Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves....
My wife and I read an email from Parentalrights.org last night regarding the plight of The Georgia Nine who were severely and horrifically abused by child protection social workers in Mississippi based on a false allegation. So Mississippi may be protecting them in the womb but all bets are off after the kids are born. They belong to the state at that point, even for kids who don't live there.

Speaking to a packed, mixed-race crowd of physicians and health-care workers in Chicago, King gave one of his most influential late-career speeches, blasting the American Medical Association and other organizations for a ‚Äúconspiracy of inaction‚ÄĚ in the maintenance of a medical apartheid that persisted even then in 1966....
...‚ÄúOf all the inequalities that exist, the injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhuman.‚ÄĚ In the moment, it reflected the work that King and that organization, the Medical Committee for Human Rights (MCHR), were doing to advance one of the since-forgotten pillars of the civil-rights movement: the idea that health care is a right. To those heroes of the civil-rights movement, it was clear that the demons of inequality that have always haunted America could not be vanquished without the establishment and protection of that right.
What's wonderful about it, just a guy? women can have a chemical induced abortion up to 22 weeks on their own!

This is due to both the pro-life movement's failure to be a consistent defender of human dignity across a broader range of issues and to its increasingly close association with the Republican Party.
The GOP is often described as America's pro-life political party. In reality, however, the GOP is not pro-life. At best, it's merely anti-abortion. At worst, it's simply misogynistic. Regardless, the Republican Party's concern for human dignity ends the moment someone is actually born. After that, it's the coldness and cruelty of Ayn Rand and social Darwinism, all the way down.

Abortion is still being supported as long as it is not performed after 15 weeks.
