Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant has signed the nation’s tightest abortion restrictions into law, the Associated Press has reported.
Bryant signed House Bill 1510, which goes into effect immediately, Monday afternoon, and bans abortions after 15 weeks’ gestation. The AP reported that Bryant has frequently said he wants Mississippi to be the “safest place in America for an unborn child.”
Abortion rights advocates have called the law unconstitutional because it limits abortion before fetuses can live outside the womb. The owner of Mississippi’s only abortion clinic opposes the law and has pledged to sue the state, the AP reported.
