Only Mississippi Abortion Clinic Gets License Reprieve


Posted on April 16th, in Issues, News, News & Opinion, State Abortion Policy.

A federal judge on Monday temporarily blocked Mississippi from revoking the license of the state’s only abortion clinic.

U.S. District Judge Daniel P. Jordan III extended an injunction he issued several months ago, which blocks the state from closing the clinic while it tries to fulfill a 2012 state law.

The law requires all OB-GYNs who do abortions at Jackson Women’s Health Organization to have privileges to admit patients to a local hospital.
