MS lawmakers embrace common sense protections by limiting abortion at 5 months of pregnancy

WASHINGTON, D.C. (04-01-14) -

Americans United for Life President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest commended the courage of the vast majority of Mississippi Legislators who today voted overwhelmingly "to put the lives and health of mothers and children first," by passing mother-child protections in MS H 1400, a bill that would limit abortion after 5 months of pregnancy. The bill, substantially based on AUL model legislation, passed the Mississippi House by 90-21 and the state Senate by 41-10. It now proceeds to Governor Phil Bryant who is expected to sign the bill into law.

"Late term abortions are deadly for both mother and child," noted Dr. Yoest. "A woman seeking an abortion at 20 weeks (five months) is 35 times more likely to die from abortion than she was in the first trimester. At 21 weeks or more, she is 91 times more likely to die from abortion than she was in the first trimester. Such horrendous statistics show the wisdom of the Mississippi legislators who moved today to enact common-sense limits on a dangerous procedure."

Legislation protecting both mother and children from abortion industry abuses and the negative impact of abortion represents a national trend. Mississippi is one of six states this session considering late-term abortion limits, including Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, South Carolina and West Virginia.

"I want to commend State House Representative Andy Gipson and State Senator Joey Fillingane, who led the way in pulling together pro-life majorities in support of a measure that will protect women from such horrific deaths witnessed in clinics across the country," said Dr. Yoest.
