    Mississippi Abortion Law To Continue To Be Blocked By Federal Judge

    JACKSON, Miss. — A federal judge on Wednesday continued to block a state law that threatened to shut down Mississippi's only abortion clinic and make it nearly impossible for a woman to get the procedure in the state.

    U.S. District Judge Daniel P. Jordan III temporarily blocked the law July 1 and extended that order Wednesday, though he did not say when he would rule on the clinic's request to put the law on hold for a longer period. If he grants that request, the case eventually would go to trial.

    The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that states can't place undue burdens or substantial obstacles to women seeking abortion. The state law would require anyone performing clinic abortions to be an OB-GYN with privileges to admit patients to a local hospital. The doctors at the clinic in Jackson do not have those privileges, which the clinic has said aren't necessary.

    Supporters of the law said it's designed to protect patients, and Republican Gov. Phil Bryant has said he hopes it will help make Mississippi "abortion-free."

    Yeah, fuck that. Let the podiatrists have a crack at performing abortions, right? Or the otolaryngologists. Or hell, even the dermatologists!

    Dumb ass.

    The issue isn't with the type of doctor; but with the requirement that the doctors have "privileges to admit patients to a local hospital". Nobody is suggesting that dermatologists be permitted to perform abortions.

    Nice try, dipshit, but you fail.

    I express no joy over abortions; but I do express joy over women still being able to choose. The law in question would close the state's ONLY abortion clinic. The gov of Mississippi said that the law would put an end to abortion in his state. The last time I checked, abortion is still legal in this country.

    Yeah it's legal, if a state didn't have a clinic they would, oh my gawd, have to travel to another state that does...life can be such a bitch when you want to take another life

    That's not the point. Abortion is legal in this country. A state can't just ban abortion. BTW, what are low-income women with no transportation or no money in their budget for interstate travel supposed to do if they need or want an abortion?

    I apologize that I can only positively rep you once.

    As I said on other threads...if you favor a woman's right to choose, you should vote for Obama. If you feel that the State should have the right to make that choice for her...you should vote for Governor Romney.
