MS also ranked last in clinical care for children and in policy for infants (under a year old), both of which are weighted scores that take into account dozens of factors, such as teen pregnancy, "adverse childhood experiences", food insecurity and infant child care cost. The country's highest court has since banned the prohibition of abortion before fetal viability, usually seen at about 20 weeks of gestation.
MS became the first state to ban abortions after 15 weeks in pregnancy after its Republican Gov. Phil Bryant signed the measure into law Monday. The new law makes it illegal for women to obtain abortions after 15 weeks, even in cases of rape and incest. That new division is created to enforce both existing laws protecting the rights of conscience for medical personnel as well as the new regulations.
The Center for Reproductive Rights said it had filed a lawsuit to block the new law on behalf of the only abortion clinic in MS, the Jackson Women's Health Organization. In other words, a showdown is coming.

"A woman who is pregnant should have the ability to make the decision that is best for her about the course of her pregnancy, based on her own values and goals for her life", Carr-Ellis said in the statement. "Those are the ones we're trying to protect". "We are all about fighting to protect the unborn".
After signing this latest bill, Bryant wrote on Twitter, "I am committed to making MS the safest place in America for an unborn child, and this bill will help us achieve that goal". "The 15-week marker has no bearing in science".
Several conservative groups, including the Mississippi Center for Public Policy, were consulted when the measure was being written.
