1. Any provider, other than a hospital, who provides five or more first-trimester abortions in any month, or any procedures beyond the first trimester, must be licensed as an "abortion clinic." (Enacted 1999)
  2. HB1390: 2012. Requires that all abortion providers in clinics be OB/GYN's and have access to local hospital facilities. As of July 11, 2012, the Supreme Court has filed an injunction blocking the law from going into effect as there is only one clinic in the entire state of Mississippi that provides abortions prior to this law. Neither of the two doctors providing the only access to abortion in Mississippi have hospital privileges. Should this law go into effect, that clinic will close, leaving Mississippi residents no local/in-state access to abortion services. The injunction does not prevent the law from coming into effect; rather, it gives the clinic a grace period in which they can continue providing its services without fear of criminal prosecution, while they attempt to come into compliance with the law.
  3. HB 2800 passed in May 2012; Federal Court blocked HB 2800 which banned the state or any local government from using public money to contract with an organization that includes abortions in its services. (October 2012)
