Judge Denies Bid to Block Mississippi Abortion Law

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Judge Denies Bid to Block Mississippi Abortion Law” – below is their description.

A Mississippi judge on Tuesday rejected a request by the state’s only abortion clinic to temporarily block a state law that would ban most abortions.

Without other developments in the clinic’s lawsuit, the law will take effect Thursday.

The clinic recently filed a lawsuit seeking to block the state from implementing the law, citing constitutional issues. That 2007 “trigger” law was stipulated to take effect if the U.S. Supreme Court ever overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide. The nation’s high court took that momentous step last month.

Attorneys for the clinic requested a temporary restraining order to stop the trigger law, but Judge Debbra K. Halford rejected that request.
