The crazy rw will never stop. They started out with limited bans such as late term abortions, then kept ramping it up to 20 wks, 15 wks, 6 wks, 4 wks, banning the morning after pill, target women to get an abortion in another state, etc. Marsha Blackburn wants to limit contraceptives to married people. It will never end with these crazies, including targeting LGBTQ & same sex marriage

Wash Post:

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R) on Sunday refused to rule out the possibility that his state would ban certain forms of contraception, sidestepping questions about what would happen next if Roe v. Wade is overturned.

On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Reeves confirmed that, if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, a trigger law passed in Mississippi in 2007 would go into effect that essentially outlaws abortions in the state, although it makes exceptions for rape and for the life of the mother.

When asked if Mississippi might next target the use of contraceptives such as the Plan B pill or intrauterine devices, Reeves demurred, saying that was not what the state was focused on “at this time.”

“My view is that the next phase of the pro-life movement is focusing on helping those moms that maybe have an unexpected and unwanted pregnancy,” Reeves said. “And while I’m sure there will be conversations around America regarding [contraceptives], it’s not something that we have spent a lot of time focused on.”

"Tater Tot" doesn't care about victims of rape or incest being forced to carry the baby to term, because his stats show there aren't many of them

Huffpost:

Mississippi’s Republican governor was pressed on CNN Sunday if incest victims will be forced to give birth under the state’s pending anti-abortion law. His only answer was that there aren’t many pregnant incest victims.

The state has a radical “snapback” law on reproductive rights waiting in the wings if Roe v. Wade is gutted. It appears that will soon be the case in light of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion leaked last week.

The law has “no exception for incest,” “State of the Union” host Jake Tapper noted to Gov. Tate Reeves.

“So, assuming the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, the state of Mississippi will force girls and women who are the victims of incest to carry those children to term. Can you explain why that is going to be your law?” Tapper asked.

’Well, that’s going to be the law because in 2007, the Mississippi legislature passed it,” Reeves responded.

Tapper pressed again: “Why is it acceptable in your state to force girls who are victims of incest to carry those children to term?”
