Obama Appointed Federal Judge Stops Mississippi Abortion Law


Judge Carlton Reeves halts the new Mississippi abortion law.

Judge Carlton Reeves said the bill “threatens immediate harm to women’s rights, especially considering most women do not seek abortion services until after 6 weeks,” according to The Hill.

“This injury outweighs any interest the state might have in banning abortions after the detection of a fetal heartbeat,” he wrote.

Judge Carlton Reeves issued a preliminary injunction stopping the passage of a Mississippi abortion law Friday banning the procedure after a heartbeat can be detected.

Reeves, an appointee of former President Barack Obama, reportedly expressed frustration Tuesday over the bill’s lack of exceptions in cases of incest and rape, reported CNN.

He said the bill “threatens immediate harm to women’s rights, especially considering most women do not seek abortion services until after 6 weeks,” according to The Hill.

“This injury outweighs any interest the state might have in banning abortions after the detection of a fetal heartbeat,” he wrote.
