Pregnant and poor in Mississippi

One year ago, Mississippi became the only state in the country where abortion is limited to the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. If the lone doctor, Joseph Booker, at the lone Mississippi clinic, the Jackson Women’s Health Organization, were to perform any abortions after the first day of that week, he could face jail time…. Here, in the poorest state of the country, all too often the reasons for delaying the procedure have to do with the struggle to come up with the money to pay for it.
