One Step Towards Victory As More Restrictive Abortion Laws Are Set

Taking the life of an unborn child is a horrendous and murderous act that has claimed millions of a generation.

Fortunately, we are in an age of hope where our President supports pro-life efforts, and representatives from all over the nation are speaking up for the silenced voices.

Mississippi is forging a new precedent by the recent signing of a bill prohibiting the dangerous procedure of killing babies in the womb after 15 weeks – but the reason it hasn’t gone into effect will infuriate you.

USA Today News reported:

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant signed House Bill 1510 into law, making it immediately illegal for a woman to obtain an abortion after 15 weeks gestation. Mississippi’s previous law restricted abortion access within the state to 20 weeks. The state’s sole abortion clinic, Women’s Health Organization, located in Jackson, does not perform abortions past 16 weeks.”

Prior to House Bill 1510, the latest some states would allow an abortion was 24 weeks, or when the baby is viable.

The exception being Virginia, who allows 3rd-trimester abortions in cases where the mother’s life is at risk.

After Bryant signed the Gestational Age Act into effect, Mississippi became the strictest state in the nation when it came to abortion laws.

The victory for America’s children, however, was short-lived. In a spiteful twist, Women’s Health Organization fought back.

USA Today News reported:

“In response to the new law, lawyer Rob McDuff filed a hearing request for a temporary restraining order on behalf of Women’s Health Organization.

Appearing via conference call in front of federal District Judge Carlton Reeves, McDuff said the state’s ban was unconstitutional, citing case law that included the landmark 1972 case of Roe v. Wade. 

It is very clear under existing law that women have a right to make their own decision,” McDuff said. The law enacted Monday would inflict irreparable harm, he contended.

“If there is no viability, the state has no real interest in telling a woman what to do with her body,” the judge said.”

It is despicable that the law would be construed to defend an abortion clinic whose sole purpose is to take the lives of unborn children.

The law Bryant signed was not banning abortion, although we hope and pray it eventually gets there but has only limited the time frame a woman gets to choose to kill her own child.

Even McDuff was aware of the potential win for pro-life supporters everywhere when he stated, “The state could continue to dial back the right to choose until it’s eviscerated,” then he continued, “They could abolish the right to choose”, reported USA Today News.

The judge’s comment of the bill being unconstitutional is simply untrue. Saying that a state should have no say in legislation that involves a woman’s body when the child is not viable is a matter of opinion; and a clear indication of Judge Reeves’ biases.

Mississippi passed House Bill 1510 going through the appropriate channels designated by state statute.

It seems more unconstitutional that the law would be allowed to be put on hold because one company will lose revenue.

The restraining order was granted by Judge Reeves for 10 days, but after the prosecutor was seemingly unprepared, Reeves extended the restraining order to April 13, according to US News.

If the bill is deemed constitutional, and put back into effect, the doctors and the women involved in the post 15-week abortion could face consequences.

Med Page Today reported:

Provisions of the law, known as the Gestational Age Act, include the possibility of jail time for women who have abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Doctors who perform abortions in violation of the law could lose their license to practice medicine and face civil penalties.”

Paul Barnes, special assistant to the attorney general, is one man on the right side of the fight, saying that “the state’s interest to protect unborn life trumps the woman’s interest”, according to USA Today News.

As the case is fought, more will be revealed about the progress of Mississippi’s unprecedented piece of legislation.

The bill being signed into effect, even though it was a short while, is a good sign that states are beginning to speak out against the liberal bullies pushing abortion rights.

Keep letting your local politicians know that you will not stand idly by while millions of unborn children are ruthlessly and selfishly murdered.

Sanctity of life needs to be protected. Please let us know in the comments section what you think of Judge Reeves issuing a restraining order against House Bill 1510.
