On Tuesday Federal Judge Carlton Reeves put a temporary block on the recent bill signed into law by Gov. Bryant to restrict abortions after 15 weeks.

The decision came after the state’s only abortion clinic filed papers Monday saying a woman, past 15 weeks, was scheduled for an abortion on Tuesday.

This law is the strictest in the nation concerning abortions.


Today Gov. Phil Bryant signed HB 1510 into law. The bill would ban any abortions in the state of Mississippi after 15 weeks. Currently, Mississippi law prohibits abortions after 20 weeks.
