Mississippi...

Two down now, 48 to go. Continuing from the South Dakota post from earlier, Mississippi is now pushing an abortion ban in their state. They already have tough abortion laws, but now they want to sign a bill into law that would ban abortions state-wide.

48 states to go. We as a country seem to be reaching a turning point and it is more than encouraging to say the least.

A Mississippi House committee voted Tuesday to ban most abortions in the state - an unexpected move that left abortion opponents grappling to stake out a position on a proposal that could prompt a lengthy court battle.

The only abortions allowed under the bill would be if the life of the pregnant woman were in danger. There would be no abortions allowed in cases of pregnancy caused by rape or incest.

It's similar to a bill that South Dakota lawmakers passed last week...

...Mississippi already has some of the strictest abortion laws in the nation, requiring a 24-hour waiting period in all cases and parental consent before a minor can have a pregnancy terminated.

The state has only one operating abortion clinic, in Jackson.


Who's next?
This is great news, ya'll.
