Governor Tate Reeves Statement on Court’s Ruling on Mississippi Trigger Law
|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE|
July 5, 2022
A Mississippi state court has denied the abortion clinic and its out-of-state doctor’s request for an injunction of our state’s trigger law that would stop all abortions in the state except in the case of rape or to save the life of the mother.
The trigger law will go into effect on July 7th, as planned.
This law has the potential to save the lives of thousands of unborn Mississippi children. It is a great victory for life. I also believe it is critical that we showcase to every mother and child that they are loved and that their communities will support them. We have much more work to do. Every life has inherent dignity and Mississippi will continue to do everything it can to advance the fight for life.
I greatly look forward to working together with communities across Mississippi to continue building a culture of life and ensuring that every child has a chance to live.
