It’s not a total victory, however the left is furious after the most recent bill which limits the killing of unborn children!

Recently the Mississippi state Senate and House of Representatives passed bills to prohibit abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detectable (between six and seven weeks gestation).

While the bills offer “life of the mother” exceptions, they do not make exceptions for infants conceived in rape or incest. An amendment to provide such an exception was proposed during debate, but it was ultimately defeated.

On the day the bills passed, Republican Governor Phil Bryant sent out a tweet saying that he intends to sign the legislation into law:

I’ve often said I want Mississippi to be the safest place for an unborn child in America. I appreciate the leadership of the MS House and Senate, along with members of the Legislature, for passing the fetal heartbeat bills today. I look forward to signing this act upon passage.

The pertinent text of the Senate bill reads in part:

Except when a medical emergency exists that prevents compliance with this section, no person shall perform an abortion on a pregnant woman before determining if the unborn human individual that the pregnant woman is carrying has a detectable fetal heartbeat. Any person who performs an abortion on a pregnant woman based on the exception in this section shall note in the pregnant woman’s medical records that a medical emergency necessitating the abortion existed. …

Except as provided in paragraph (b) or (c) of this subsection (5), no person shall knowingly perform an abortion on a pregnant woman with the specific intent of causing or abetting the termination of the life of the unborn human individual that the pregnant woman is carrying and whose fetal heartbeat has been detected according to the requirements of subsection (3) of this section.

The legislation goes on to make exceptions for doctors who engage in procedures that would “prevent the death of a pregnant woman or to prevent a serious risk of the substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function of the pregnant woman.”

In response to the bill’s passage, the Center for Reproductive Rights tweeted:

Last November, a federal judge struck down Mississippi’s 15-week ban, calling the law “unequivocally” unconstitutional. Now, the state is pushing an even more extreme measure, a 6-week abortion ban, in an attempt to eliminate abortion access in the state entirely.

According to the Clarion Ledger, during the floor debate on the bill, Democratic state Senator Derrick Simmons asked Republican state Senator Joey Fillingane if it was worth the money to fight this bill in court — a reference to the alleged $1.2 million the state spent fighting over 2018’s 15-week abortion ban.

Fillingane said that it was indeed worth it. Republican state Senator Michael Watson went further, asking, “What is a life worth?”

The legislation will most certainly be challenged in court.

As the above tweet noted, after Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban was signed into law in March 2018, the Center for Reproductive Rights sued. On November 20, 2018, District Judge Carlton W. Reeves ruled that the law was “unconstitutional.” He added: “Mississippi’s law violates Supreme Court precedent, and in doing so it disregards the Fourteenth Amendment guarantee of autonomy for women desiring to control their own reproductive health.”

  1. What this means in actuality is that any man of sperm carrying age has control of a woman’s life and body – he just has to impregnate her. This should infuriate all women and men of conscience.

    • That is the worst line of sexism that I’ve heard in a long time. Since when have women and girls just been “victims” of “sperm carting age” males!?! What do I guess that you believe that females are dummer than dirt and don’t know how to say no and mean it; I guess you think that all females are impregnated without any participation on their part!?! You are demonstrating how ignorant and cold hearted you are!

    • No, responsible reproductive health options called abstinence, birth control pill, condoms, etc. should be used. Abortion is murder, not birth control, or the clever label attached to make it seemingly acceptable “reproductive health.”

  2. I commend all these individual states for stepping up to protect the unborn and this is very admiral . But untill we litterally destroy the baby killing parts harvesting murdering planned parent hood . All this is for naught , Aks why do denocrats protect such a place so vigirously. MONEY AND GREED . Even if every state were to addopt such new abortion laws democrats would simply wait out the setting Prestdent and fraud there way back into a 3 part Gov . Control . No one person 10 person 1000 person and stand against them . We are the answer and the cure . Folks this is why we are called the United States Its all out war and its coming from within our own government . CURE ! STOP!! ELECTING !!! DEMOCRATS !!! ITS JUST THAT SIMPLE AND TAKE IT A STEP FUTHER SET TERM LIMITS ON CONGRESS AND SENATE . send these dinosuars packing

    • That’s totally a rediculous statement !
      Women have always had total control over their bodies
      They still don’t have the right to kill another human Bri g
      That was and will never be a human right !

    • Amen, couldn’t have said it better myself. Thank you so much for speaking out about the real truth of Planned Parent hood and other places that are making big business out of fetus body parts harvesting. It’s a horrific practice. I watched a documentary about it just the other night. A technician at the clinic filmed the procedures they used and the conversations they had in meetings inside the abortion clinic and she testified in graphic detail her first experience of having to cut a full term babies brain out of it’s head after the doctor killed the baby because it was aborted and it’s heart was still beating when out of the womb even after the dejoxsin was injected into the womb to kill the baby. Which is against Federal Law for them to use in an abortion. Because the body parts business is lucrative the clinics and Dr.s now plan abortions to tailor to what and how many profitable body parts they can extract out of a baby after abortion. The technician that had to perform the horrible procedure on the baby was so traumatized by the experience she quite working at the clinic and chose to go public to expose the clinics immoral and illegal abortion and body part harvesting practices.

  3. Praise God for Mississippi standing up for the life of innnocent babies!! Shame on liberal Hollywood for blaming and smearing Trump again with racist accusations. Not true! MAGA!

  4. PRO CHOICE
    PRO ROE-vs-WADE
    especially for the underprivileged – WE DON’T NEED the additional Financial Burdens of INDIGENT POOR

  5. GOD BLESS MS, AS YOU WAGE YOUR WAR AGAINST LIBERAL INFANTICIDE IN AMERICA! GOD WILL NO LONGER BLESS AMERICA, IF HER PEOPLE AGREE THAT ABORTION, ESPECIALLY PAST THE WEEKS WHEN A FETAL HEART BEAT CAN BE HEARD, IS PERMISSIBLE. THIS IS ABSOLUTE BARBARIANISM, AND THAT OF EVIL WOMEN AND MEN, BECAUSE THE BIBLE DECLARES, THAT GOD SAID: “WHEN YOU WERE IN YOUR MOTHER’S WOMB, I KNEW YOU…”
    WE MUST NOT ALLOW LIBERALS AND SATAN TO RULE OUR COUNTRY, NOR OUR HEARTS, BY MURDERING UNBORN BABIES, AS A MATTER OF CONVENIENCE FOR ANY REASON!

  6. It is a sad world we live in when murder is used as a means of birth control. As a former funeral Director, I can tell you that at 14 weeks gestation, a fetus has fully formed hands and feet and yet they are only 1/4 inch long. These little ones are God’s gifts meant to be treasured and cared for regardless how they were conceived. Each one is special, with feelings, and a need to be nurtured to grow into a being that will affect the world for better or worse. Next it will be the elderly and perhaps those that cannot contribute to the tax apparatus that these ungodly politicians have strapped on all of our backs. For the sake of goodness, don’t give these people another term.
    They walk with the blood of many millions on their hands

    • Thank you for your information. I’ve had eight pregnancies with only three survivals. It was God’s choice not mine that not all made it.
      I read in my chart at my Drs office (I worked there) and I wish I hadn’t. Recorded one miscarry with the baby’s measurements. So how can these women find it in their hearts to kill these babes?
      We keep what God gives us. I lost a baby boy
      at 6 1/2 months. I’ll never forget him and today I can still cry. Those that choose an abortion you need to feel guilty but it was your choice. Don’t worry about what your parents will do/say. It always works out. There are ppl who will help. Do no give up. Ever.

  7. WOMEN DO NOT HAVE TO GET PREGANT THIS DAY AND TIME, THERE IS TOO MUCH PROTECTION AVAILABLE ON EVERY CORNER. THE PILL, CONDOMS, AND NOW WE HAVE A PILL FOR THE MAN, ETC. SO, IF SHE DOES AND KILLS A BABY, SHE SHOULD BE BROUGHT UP FOR MURDER AND THE PEOPLE THAT PERFORM THE ABORTION.
