The liberals are upset because this is one less body part that they can sell… 🙁
JACKSON, Miss. – Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant on Thursday signed one of the strictest abortion laws in the nation – a measure that bans most abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, about six weeks into pregnancy.
The New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights called the measure “cruel and clearly unconstitutional” and said it would sue Mississippi to try to block the law from taking effect on July 1. Bryant’s action came despite a federal judge’s decision last year striking down a less-restrictive law limiting abortions in the state.
After a bill signing ceremony at the state Capitol, Bryant told reporters that he’s not worried about lawsuits.
“They don’t have to sue us. It’s up to them,” Bryant said. “If they do not believe in the sanctity of life, these that are in organizations like Planned Parenthood, we will have to fight that fight. But it is worth it.”
