Center for Reproductive Rights – Press Release: Center for Reproductive Rights Takes Legal Action to Keep Last Abortion Clinic in Mississippi Open:

House Bill 1390, which was signed into law on April 16, imposes medically unwarranted requirements that any physician performing abortions in the state be a board certified or eligible obstetrician-gynecologist with admitting privileges at an area hospital. . . .
