Mississippi set to become first state without an abortion clinic


As it stands now there is only one. And yesterday a federal judge temporarily blocked a new law designed to put it out of business.

The law requires all doctors providing abortions to have admitting privileges to local hospitals. The problem is two of the three doctors have applied to seven local hospitals- and so far have been refused such privileges- most likely because the hospitals don’t want to deal with abortion protesters.

When Republican governor Phil Bryant signed the law he said “We want Mississippi abortion free”.  Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves likewise said ” we have an oppurtunity today with the signing of this bill to end abortion in mississippi” . And one of the sponsors of the bill, Sam Mimms saidthat if the law “Causes this abortion facility to close, then I brlieve it is a good thing”.

Never mind Roe V Wade nor the numerous subsequent supreme court rulings upholding the right to an abortion. The GOP, yes, the “party of freedom” will do whatever it takes to circumvent the laws, and the supreme court, to advance their conservative agenda.

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
