Mississippi just passed the most restrictive abortion law in the country, so happy International Women’s Day, I guess
There’s only one clinic in the state
by Katie Way
Many women around the country — not to mention the planet — don't have access to the healthcare they need, which is why it would be cool if International Women's Day was more than a chance to unveil a new ad campaign.
But shitty, anti-women legislation doesn't take a day off, which is why the Mississippi House of Representatives just passed a bill that bans abortions after 15 weeks of gestation.
The bill, HB 1510, has no exceptions for cases of rape or incest, and the Mississippi governor Phil Bryant has already said that he'll sign the bill when it's passed on to him.
As I have repeatedly said, I want Mississippi to be the safest place in America for an unborn child. House Bill 1510 will help us achieve that goal. https://t.co/ffqRfhwx51

According to Tonic, access to the procedure is already severely limited. Other obstacles to obtaining an abortion in the state include a 24-hour wait period, mandated counseling and the requirement that women get an ultrasound.
The Associated Press called the measure likely to be the nation’s most restrictive abortion law, and the owner of the only abortion clinic in the entire state has vowed to sue over its passage.
