JACKSON, Miss. (AP) Mississippi could soon become the only state without an abortion clinic because of a new law taking effect this weekend. Critics say the law would force women to drive hours across the state line to obtain a constitutionally protected procedure, or could even force some to carry unwanted pregnancies to term.

And that’s where the Northeast liberals most want one....
Thanks Roberts - now MS will be forced to build one! Thanks for having our back Justice Roberts.
There’s a reason why Obama was so desperate to pass it.
The ultimate horror to these people.
Not forced, never forced. They will be taxed into bankruptcy if they choose not to build a new one.
or could even force some to carry unwanted pregnancies to term.
Hearing quite a few commercials on the radio by Planned Parenthood,funny how they never mention their number one moneymaker.
Makes me want to move there.
Pro life ping
Bragging rights. Nice! Someone has to lead.
Where do people get off thinking that they have a right to a medical procedure? The choice to perform any procedure should be up to the doctor’s judgement and what that hospital or clinic wishes to offer.
Kind of like women trying to buy a "constitutionally protected" gun in Washington DC.
“...a constitutionally protected procedure”?
No. The SCOTUS ruled that a right to privacy existed under the due process clause of the 14th Amendment. The due process clause states: “...nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law...”
This created from whole cloth the legal idea that privacy equated to either liberty or property. But this extrapolation is neither in the constitution, nor protected by it. It is unique to that decision.
Properly, then: “abortion is ...a SCOTUS legislated procedure.” They may reinterpret day into night in the constitution, but it remains just their fantasy. The constitution remains unchanged.”
Civil Rights are endowed by the creator. Whimsical privileges are created by man, and can be taken away by man.
Actually, I believe South Dakota has braggin’ rights.
MS is number 2. So that’s 2 of 50 now.
awesome,maybe there is hope after all for an enclave where real American values can thrive. But for me, I like the weather in Mississippi way better than that of South Dakota
I was going to say the same thing—I believe that the last abortion mill in SD shut down a couple of years ago.
You should understand this does not mean there are zero legal abortions in Mississippi. All it means is there are no clinics that specialize.
2 down, 48 to go.
A few clinics were shut down here. Now if Planned Barrenhood can join them.
