Louisiana and Mississippi Shut Down Remaining Abortion Facilities in Aftermath of Roe v Wade Repeal (USA)

The last 3 abortion facilities in the US state of Louisiana are about to be closed down following the reversal of Roe v Wade earlier this year. Mississippi has also closed all such facilities following its landmark case Dobbs v Jackson. After the “momentous” overturning of Roe v Wade, US States such as Louisiana and Mississippi can decide their own abortion laws, and as many as half of US States are now limiting or banning, or are expected to ban abortion, as reported by SPUC. In Louisiana, providers of abortion may now receive US$100 000 fine or up to 10 years in prison. Mississippi is also one of 13 other states that have similar laws.
