Mississippi residents share their thoughts on the state two years after the Dobbs ruling

It has been two years since the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, leaving the regulation of abortion up to individual states. Recently, the effects of Mississippi’s near-total abortion ban have come to light, and they may be more far-reaching than many people realize.

According to Dr. John Preston Parry, the founder of Positive Steps Fertility, the impact of the Dobbs decision has been far-reaching and extensive, beyond what many may have initially thought.

Parry commented on the irony of preventing loving families and individuals seeking to have children from accessing medical professionals who are willing to assist in the process.

In the latest developments, politicians and certain religious groups have raised concerns regarding the morality of IVF procedures and have called for potential restrictions. Additionally, there are cases that present a moral dilemma, particularly when pregnancies are no longer viable, but state laws impose strict bans with limited or no exceptions.

Parry emphasized that individuals who desire children are facing limitations in accessing appropriate medical care for biological complications. She highlighted the struggles of women who have experienced ectopic pregnancies or other intricate situations in obtaining necessary treatment.

Last week, a federal judge made a significant ruling blocking the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s enforcement of an abortion-related rule in Mississippi and Louisiana. The rule mandated women seeking abortions to be granted paid time off, which has now been temporarily halted. Attorney General Lynn Fitch considers this a win for their cause.

Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch expressed her relief over the recent opinion that prevented overreach and change in dynamics for pregnant workers. “This was an opportunity they were looking for,” she said, highlighting the significance of the decision.

Michelle Colon, Executive Director of SHEro Mississippi, pointed out that the increased number of people seeking support has forced community-based organizations like SHEro and other abortion funds to reduce their funding assistance to individuals.

According to the AG, the primary objective of her office remains to enhance the position of women by providing them with more resources and opportunities. However, organizations such as Planned Parenthood are advocating for a state of emergency due to the ongoing limitations in accessing reproductive healthcare.
