Incests do not take place in Mississippi

It didn't work in South Dakota, now it is Mississippi's turn. In 2006, the good people of S. Dakota voted against draconian anti-abortion law proposed by Governor Mike Rounds and the Christian Right. Now who else but Haley Barbour, former chairman of the Republican National Committee, currently governor of Mississippi, has become the champion of anti-abortionists by signing a bill that would ".......criminalize abortion in the event that the U.S. Supreme Court overturns the 1973 decision that legalized the procedure."

Part of a strategy -- cynical strategy -- the goal is to take the issue to the Supreme Court in the hope of overturning Roe v. Wade. They think that with recent appointments by President Bush the court could side with them.

The only exceptions to the state ban would be in cases of rape or if the pregnancy threatened the woman's life. The bill has no exception for pregnancies caused by incest.
