Mississippi Aims to Shut Down Its Last Abortion Clinic

The Atlantic: Will Mississippi Close Its Last Abortion Clinic?, by Alissa Quart:

Forty years after the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade, one state may be on the verge of becoming abortion-free.

. . . [Dr. Willie] Parker is an abortion provider. But he is also the plaintiff in a case that may have extreme political consequences. Jackson Women's Health Organization is the last abortion clinic in Mississippi, and state legislators are trying to shut it down: The next court date is at the end of January. Republican Governor Phil Bryant has called it "the first step in a movement, I believe, to do what we campaigned on: to say that we're going to try to end abortion in Mississippi." . . .
