Mississippi House Sends Abortion Procedure Ban to Governor

Mississippi would ban a commonly used second-trimester abortion procedure under a bill headed to Gov. Phil Bryant’s desk.

The House voted 85-32 Tuesday to approve Senate changes to the legislation…

…The measure would outlaw a procedure called dilation and evacuation unless an abortion is required to prevent a mother’s irreversible physical impairment. It would prohibit abortions extracting a live fetus in pieces using instruments such as clamps and forceps.

The bill’s supporters describe the procedure as dismemberment and say it’s unnecessarily cruel.
