Remember this segment from the Rachel Maddow Show? Mississippi is trying to be the first state to completely ban abortion. That is their aim and they said it right out loud. Watch:
“Watch this this weekend.”
It’s Monday, and this weekend there was a reprieve from one of those damned activist librul judges! L.A. Times:
JACKSON, Miss. — A federal judge Sunday temporarily blocked enforcement of a Mississippi law that could shut down the only abortion clinic in the state.
U.S. District Judge Daniel P. Jordan in Jackson issued a temporary restraining order the day the new law took effect and set a July 11 hearing to determine whether to block it for a longer time.
“Though the debate over abortion continues, there exists legal precedent the court must follow,” Jordan wrote. [...] “Plaintiffs have offered evidence — including quotes from significant legislative and executive officers — that the act’s purpose is to eliminate abortions in Mississippi. They likewise submitted evidence that no safety or health concerns motivated its passage. This evidence has not yet been rebutted.“
