Mississippi Could Become First Abortion-Free StateSteven Ertelt | Jackson, MS | LifeNews.com | 4/5/12 12:15 PM
The Mississippi state Senate has approved a measure that abortion backers strongly oppose because it could result in stopping abortions at the last remaining abortion facility in the state, making it the first abortion-free state in the country.
The ability of pro-life laws to reduce the number of abortions and abortion clinics in a state is longstanding and some states like South Carolina, Missouri, Michigan and others have seen abortions drop to historic lows thanks to a variety of pro-life legislation stopping abortions, protecting women and protecting teen girls and parental rights. Mississippi is one such state and its laws have helped close all but one abortion center.
Now, a bill to require abortion practitioners to have admitting privileges at a local hospital in case a botched abortion requires a woman to be immediately hospitalized has the potential to make it so the final abortion business may have trouble securing an abortion practitioner with such privileges.
