Dr. Sacheen Carr-Ellis, in a sworn statement, said she'll have to stop providing abortions to women past the 15 week ban, or else lose her MS medical license, as House Bill 1510 requires. The Center for Reproductive Rights and Jackson Women's Health Organization filed suit yesterday afternoon challenging the constitutionality of the law, shortly after the governor signed the bill, which took effect immediately. U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves blocked the most restrictive abortion ban enacted in the country this morning for 10 days.

"I refer to it as an "abortion" or "abortion procedure" versus qualifying them as surgical abortions since they aren't all surgical", said Dr. Bhavik Kumar, a physician who performs abortion at Whole Woman's Health Austin in Texas told ThinkProgress in reference to dilation and evacuation.

Gov. Phil Bryant signed HB 1510 into law on Monday, quipping that he expected a lawsuit to follow. "I pray today we have saved the first life of an unborn child in MS", he tweeted. Ron Hood and Nino Vitale could open doctors who perform abortions up to murder charges or wrongful death lawsuits if it were passed.

Earlier today, the Jacksonville Jaguars announced the release of wide receiver Allen Hurns to save $7 million in cap space. The Jets have plenty of money available, especially considering how much they had set aside to make a run at Kirk Cousins.

"The Supreme Court says every woman has a constitutional right to "personal privacy" regarding her body", Reeves wrote in a brief decision that quoted previous legal rulings on abortion.

"Mississippi politicians' flagrant assault on reproductive rights will not go unchallenged", said Lourdes Rivera, senior vice president of United States programs at the Center for Reproductive Rights, in a written statement. Mississippi's only abortion clinic has promised to sue.

House Bill 1510 passed the MS legislature in early March, and Bryant recently said the "15-week ban will be the most protective language for the unborn". "They are kicking, they have developed taste buds, their eyelids are moving, their hands and feet have been formed", Bryant said. "Those are the ones we're trying to protect". The law does not make exceptions in cases of rape or incest.

Modi government played politics over death of Indians in Iraq: Congress
In a statement, Iraq's government said it had worked with the Indian Embassy to positively identify the remains using DNA samples. Adding further Kaur said, "I was having deep intuition from inside of my heart when Government had asked us to go for DNA tests".

It featured some exceptions, including if a woman's life or a "major bodily function" is threatened or if the fetus has a health problem that would mean it likely wouldn't survive outside the womb. On Monday, Bryant signed the nation's most restrictive abortion measures into law.

The new MS law is expected to be challenged in court.

This comes in addition to the state's other requirements for abortions. We will fight this unconstitutional ban and ensure that women can access legal and safe abortion care, no matter their zip code.

Dannenfelser called the status quo on abortion "unjust" and "untenable".

FC Barcelona forward Lionel Messi says he's evolved to be 'less selfish'
I'm a bit annoyed by it because it's a talking point and it's a thing people went to dwell on". I have to assess what is best for me and for the club".

Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves echoed that sentiment Monday, tweeting "It's a great day in Mississippi" along with a picture of the signing. The courts have already confirmed this many times over that similar abortion bans are unconstitutional.
