JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – The Mississippi fetal heartbeat law was back in court on Thursday.
According to the Center for Reproductive Rights, its litigation team went before a federal appeals court, arguing to block Mississippi’s 6-week abortion ban.
The law, which effectively bans all abortions at around six-weeks, has already been blocked by a circuit court judge.
The same federal appeals court has already struck down Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban.
