Mississippi’s Last Abortion Clinic Sues to Block Shutdown

Mississippi’s sole remaining abortion clinic sued state officials over regulations it claims will force it to shut down and “effectively ban abortion” in the state.

The Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the state’s only clinic providing elective abortions, filed a lawsuit today in U.S. District Court in Jackson, Mississippi, seeking to block the state health department from enforcing requirements set to take effect July 1. The clinic said in its complaint that the regulations violate women’s constitutional right to an abortion.
