The Mississippi law clearly violates established precedent under Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which prohibit states from putting "undue burdens" on abortion rights. The law clearly fails the litmus test.
It reminds me of the revenue stamp requirements of olden days, when in fact the revenue stamps were nonexistent.
This law effectively lets Mississippi hospitals become the arbiters and gatekeepers of access to abortion. It's an unfettered and unconstitutional restriction.
I have no doubt that the law will be tossed out in Federal courts.
