Mississippi lawmakers are considering what could become one of the strictest abortion laws in the country. Bills that passed legislative committees Tuesday would ban abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. Governor Phil Bryant has said he will sign either House Bill 732 or Senate Bill 2116, which move to the full House and Senate for more work. Supporters and opponents anticipate a court fight as an Iowa judge struck down a similar law there last month. Last year Mississippi passed a law banning abortion after 15 weeks and a federal judge declared it unconstitutional.
