The gov. does anticipate some challenges regarding this new legislation but he is hopeful "that it will get to the Supreme Court and they will uphold it."
Not everyone obviously agrees with this bill, such as Elisabeth Smith, chief counsel at the pro-choice Center for Reproductive Rights, whi think that the new law is "blatantly unconstitutional." She will take action and has said to take this to court.
"This law would ban abortion before most women know that they're pregnant. Already, Mississippi has a slew of abortion restrictions and only one abortion clinic, making it nearly impossible to access abortion before six weeks of pregnancy," said Smith.
But Bryant is firm on his decision and tweeted:
We will all answer to the good Lord one day. I will say in this instance, “I fought for the lives of innocent babies, even under threat of legal action.” https://t.co/4bHEmCqN74— Phil Bryant (@PhilBryantMS) March 20, 2019
