Validity of law banning abortion in Mississippi uncertain

A group of anti-abortion doctors in the state say the validity of the law banning most abortions remains uncertain.

The doctors argue in a lawsuit filed today that another legal victory is required to clarify the ban and protect them from punishment by medical institutions.

The lawsuit argues that while the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the state’s Supreme Court must overturn its 1998 opinion holding that abortion is a right protected by the Mississippi Constitution.
