New law requires physicians to have hospital admitting privileges

JACKSON -- Abortion will still be legal in Mississippi next month. It's just that women who live there probably won't be able to get one.

Beginning July 1, all abortion-clinic physicians must have admitting privileges at a local hospital under a law passed by the Republican-led Legislature and signed by Republican Gov. Phil Bryant in April. At the Jackson Women's Health Organization, the state's sole remaining clinic providing elective abortions, none of the three physicians who perform the procedure has been granted those privileges.

Mississippi may become the first state without a dedicated abortion clinic if the Jackson facility fails to come into compliance.

The law holds abortion providers to a higher standard and protects the rights of unborn children, said Terri Herring, national director of the Mississippi-based Pro Life America Network.

"If Mississippi closes the last abortion clinic, we will be leading the way," said Herring, who lobbied for the law.

Mississippi once had as many as 14 abortion clinics.

I suggest other states follow in Mississippi’s steps. This is a very smart way to shut down a clinic while keeping it ‘legal’.

I think statists like Sanger meant for abortion to make up for the moral shortcomings of a secularist society. I mean when I was 18 in '73 I was all in on total license no accountability. But after 35-50 million abortions over a 40 year range the results in. Epic Fail!!!! Morality cannot be replaced.

Making Murder Miserable—em eye ess ess eye ess ess eye pee pee eye...

...Mississippi was the second noble and honorable nation (following my beloved and Holy SC of course) to declare independence from proto-Obama Yankee tyranny (yes nation-back then we were THESE United States—sovereign bodies in an alliance constitutionally binding as long as the federal entity followed the dictates of the document—which it didn't) so that makes them NEXT to the best! Which is pretty dang good.

Not quite abortion free. Regular hospitals and OB-gyns may still do early ones, perhaps describing and billing it as something else. Still, a huge deal.

Good riddance to abortion in MS. Other states should follow their lead. I lke to see Colorado where I live eliminate it as well. The problem are the libs in the population centers from Denver to Boulder.

Both large and small medical establishments nationwide conscientiously eschew abortion unless, in an emergency, the mother's life is in immanent danger.

Practicing on demand abortionists are, in the (unreported, natch) opinion of the medical community, apostates to the Hippocratic Oath and are considered misanthropic outcasts by those who do therapy and surgery in the cause of life.

this is right and good. prayers and blessings to all who had a hand in this outcome. I am sure this result has been laid brick by brick. Shows the power of what can happen if we work for something and Never give up.

I don’t dare to pretend to know what God will do or when, but if Mississippi were a stock, I’d buy it.

Actually, the law won't cause abortion providers to be treated any differently than any other doctor with regards to hospital privileges. This is simply correcting an anomaly created by the pro-abortion forces when the clinics were opened.

MOST clinics don't have a doctor on staff all the time. Many abortionists will fly into a city from out of town, or even out of state, and do abortions for only one day. Not surprising they wouldn't have hospital privileges. But for the safety of the woman, the doctor SHOULD be able to admit to a hospital, in case of a dire emergency. What else are they gonna do, drop her in the parking lot and blow the car horn?

EXACTLY!! It is sheer lunacy to allow such a dangerous medical procedure in a ‘clinic’ where no one has hospital privileges, where standards are care are suspect, where the ‘nurses’ are bottom of the barrel. The only recourse in a crisis is an ER visit for the woman. Not a good scenario at all.

So, let the doctors apply to the local hospitals for privileges and good luck getting them!!

When I read this article I immediately thought of you, and your ignorance on the abortion subject.

I don’t know if your ignorance is intentional, or simply a lack of making yourself aware of the continuous and large steps being made on the abortion issue on a national scale.

If it’s the latter, your find this article encouraging, if it’s the former, you’ll find it troubling.

Very nice!

I expect that the infanticide providers will finagle a way to get hospital privileges somewhere in MS. But it’ll cost them.

I wonder if any state has explored the use of inspection fees? Abbatoirs that process cattle are thoroughly inspected to prevent the transmission of disease. Should we expect any less from abbatoirs that process unborn children? Naturally, the taxpayer shouldn’t have to foot the bill for the necessary inspections, and all that laboratory testing IS expensive. Especially when you do it every hour, on the hour.
