The Mississippi Senate passed a bill Wednesday that prohibits abortions when a fetal heartbeat is detected.

SB 2116 provides an exemption for cases of medical emergencies. The bill now goes to the state House for consideration.

“A beating heart means life has begun and should be protected,” said Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves. “This bill is another step in our work to make Mississippi the safest place in America for an unborn child.”



Tate Reeves is a product of small-town Mississippi and a lifelong Mississippian. A strong conservative, Tate’s leadership in state government has focused on the principles of guarding the taxpayers’ dollars, improving educational opportunity, and growing new careers so that the state’s best and brightest can stay in our state.
