Judge Blocks Law That Would Shut Down Mississippi’s Only Abortion Clinic

Posted by | July 1, 2012 22:35 | Filed under: Top Stories

Mississippi is trying to effectively end abortions in that state.

The law requires anyone performing abortions at the state’s only clinic to be an OB-GYN with privileges to admit patients to a local hospital. Such privileges can be difficult to obtain, and the clinic contends the mandate is designed to put it out of business. A clinic spokeswoman, Betty Thompson, has said the two physicians who do abortions there are OB-GYNs who travel from other states.

A July 11 hearing will determine more about the law’s viability.
