Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R) on Sunday said his state will enforce a law banning most abortions if Roe v. Wade is overturned, days after the Supreme Court held a hearing on the Magnolia State’s 15-week abortion ban that could chip away at the landmark 1973 ruling.
A “snapback law” for abortion is currently in existence in Mississippi, which calls for most abortions in the state to be banned if Roe v. Wade is overturned. The only exemptions to the law would be rape and if the life of the mother is in danger.
The article goes on to state the following:
Pressed by co-host Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union” if Mississippi would start enforcing the law in the state if Roe is overturned, Reeves said yes,
“That is a yes because if you believe as I believe very strongly that that innocent, unborn child in the mother’s womb is in fact a child, the most important word when we talk about unborn children is not unborn, but it’s children,” Reeves said.
“And so yes, I’ll do everything I can to protect the lives of those children,” the governor added.
Reeves also clarified to CNN viewers that all abortion services in America will not be banned if Roe v. Wade is overturned.
“I just want to make sure everyone is clear that if Roe v, Wade is overturned, that doesn’t mean that no one in America is going to have access, although that might make people like me happy, but what it does mean is that all 50 states, the laboratories of democracy, are going to have the ability to enact their own laws with respect to abortion, and I think that’s the way it should be in America,” he exclaimed.
CNN’s @jaketapper asks Gov. Tate Reeves (R-MS) about his “pro-life” views:
“Mississippi ranks 50th out of 50 for child well-being. How do you square those statistics about Mississippi with what you say about a culture of life?” pic.twitter.com/3JPVzBjGcc
