The State Senate passes House Bill 1510, which seeks to ban abortion after 15 weeks of gestation.
Mississippi would lead the nation and become the first state to pass such a bill, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said. HB1510 was held on a procedural motion before returning to the State House.
“Mississippians are committed to protecting the lives of unborn children, and this law will be a major step in accomplishing that goal,” Reeves said. “I am committed to making Mississippi the safest place in America for an unborn child,” Reeves added.
