It is a very real possibility that Mississippi could be the first state in the U.S. not to have an abortion clinic. As of right now, only one abortion clinic is left in the state due to the ongoing pressure of the public and the legislature. Even now, pressure continues to mount in the legislature to restrict the use of abortion pills.
According to the Associated Press….
Mississippi could restrict the use of abortion-inducing drugs and make women visit a physician an additional time after using them.
Senate Bill 2795 also would restrict a woman from taking the pills to seven weeks after their last menstruation. Many doctors now prescribe the medicine up to nine weeks into a pregnancy.
The Senate Public Health and Welfare Committee approved the measure Tuesday, sponsored by Sen. Angela Burks Hill, R-Picayune. It goes to the full Senate for more debate.
