Sen. Joey Fillingane, R-Sumrall, is photographed during a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting, Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019, in Jackson, Miss. Fillingane helped usher through the Senate Public Health and Welfare Committee, a bill that would ban abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. Supporters and opponents anticipate a court fight if passed into law.


JACKSON, Miss. (AP) ó Mississippi lawmakers are considering what could become one of the strictest abortion laws in the country. Bills that passed legislative committees Tuesday would ban abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

Republican Gov. Phil Bryant has said he will sign either House Bill 732 or Senate Bill 2116 , which are moving to the full House and Senate for more work. Supporters and opponents anticipate a court fight.

An Iowa judge struck down a similar law there last month.

Several states could consider tighter abortion restrictions to get a challenge up to the more conservative U.S. Supreme Court to try to overturn the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

1. That changes Roe v. Wade.

Roe v. Wade defines life beginning as when the fetus could live outside the body, and determined it (at that time) to be 6 months. So this MS law would define it as beginning when there is a heartbeat, even though it can't live outside the body.

If they pass this, it will go to the Supreme Court, where I expect it will be upheld, now that the anti-abortion justices are in place.

This would effectively outlaw abortion in MS, since by the time you'd discover you're pregnant, take some time to make a decision, and get an appt for an abortion, most would likely be past the 6 week time limit. (Esp since I'm guessing that MS doesn't have many, if any, abortion clinics.)

2. Time to make men post "Baby Bonds"

If they donít post million dollar bonds that women they impregnate can draw from for their pregnancy and rearing of the child, or to give to other caregivers, then the man must have a mandatory vasectomy.

Let see how long the men talk about banning abortion if they had to actually pay something for all the government forced labor of producing a child creates.

I think it is time to turn the tables and be as aggressive as they are back. Talk about compensation, talk about how easy it is to get paternity tests. If the men disappear, then the government becomes liable for payment to this woman for pain suffering, risk of life. Time lost from work, on and on.

Any way, Iíve been ruminating about this idea for quite sometime.

What do you think?

5. Outstanding idea. Something just has to be done. Going back would be a crime against humanity.

Their great pretense of caring about the "unborn" is clearly a load of hooey when they hate the "born" so much, and think capital punishment is just fine for poor people who can't afford expensive lawyers after being charged with serious crimes, sometimes proven to be false charges, after all, years after being imprisoned.

It's going to take more than simply trying to allow white, greedy, racist, selfish, pathetic grifters decide how everyone else is going to live.

The world doesn't want people to go back to the evil way things were unjustly done.

3. OMG. The longer I looked at that idiotic face, the sicker I got.

I had to find a video to hear his voice, watch his absurd mannerisms, and it's unbearable imagining some P.O.S. like this having ANY effect on the lives of women he doesn't even know, or any he does know, without their consent. My God this guy sucks:



This is, of course, simply my opinion. I had to vent somehow, not wanting to tear up my laptop!
