Mississippi Attorney General Asks Supreme Court to Overrule Roe v. Wade, Calling Case ‘Overwhelming’
Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch today urged the U.S. Supreme Court to overrule Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that upheld a woman’s right to an abortion before fetal viability. The brief is part of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case the nation’s high court is set to hear in the fall over Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban.
Former Moss Point, Miss., Mayor Mario King will serve 30 months in prison and spend three years on probation, a federal judge in Gulfport decided today. King and his wife, Natasha King, pled guilty to wire- fraud charges in February after a grand jury indicted them last year.
