Mississippi Governor Signs Pro-Life Law Banning Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves signed a pro-life law Wednesday to protect unborn babies from being discriminated against because of their sex, race or a disability, such as Down syndrome, WLBT News reports. The Life Equality Act ( House Bill 1295) prohibits abortions because of the unborn baby’s race, sex or genetic abnormality.
