MISSISSIPPI GOVERNOR SIGNS NATION’S MOST RESTRICTIVE ABORTION LAWp19article172214wp.png

ㅤ”Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant (R) has reportedly signed the nation’s most restrictive abortion ban into law.
ㅤThe law Bryant reportedly signed Monday bans abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, down from a 20-week restriction already on Mississippi’s books
ㅤThe measure, which is effective immediately, features some exceptions, including if the woman’s life or a ‘major bodily function’ is threatened or if the fetus has a health problem that would mean it likely wouldn’t survive outside the womb. However, it doesn’t include exemptions in cases of rape or incest.”
