The Only Abortion Clinic in Mississippi Could Soon Shut Down

Abortion activists are tearing their hair out over the possibility of Mississippi’s last abortion clinic possibly closing. Jackson Women’s Health has been fighting a 2012 law that requires all abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital, and if the Supreme Court doesn’t strike down the law, then the clinic will be closed for good.

Mississippi could soon become the first state in the nation without a single abortion provider.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit is set to hear oral arguments next week regarding a 2012 law that would force the only remaining clinic in the state to close immediately.

The legislation is part of a recent wave of antiabortion regulations that have shuttered large numbers of providers in several states. However, the situation in Mississippi is arguably the most extreme, as the state has only one facility offering legal abortions.

A state having the right to make their own laws regarding the regulation of abortion clinics has absolutely infuriated abortion advocates. It’s puzzling, though: if they want abortion completely unregulated and have no concern for the safety of women undergoing abortions, then why bother making it legal to begin with?
