Health care is one of the most sensitive and (at times) controversial areas of law, particularly with respect to subjects such as physician-assisted suicide, abortion access, and even access to affordable health care.

This section includes articles on durable powers of attorney, which allow you to name someone as your health care agent and thus able to make important decisions on your behalf, as well as the laws protecting the privacy of your medical information. There also are articles on abortion restrictions in the state. Click on a link below to learn more about Mississippi's health care laws.
