Gipson is the major sponsor of a cord blood bill that says if a girl younger than 16 gives birth in Mississippi and won’t name the father, authorities must collect umbilical cord blood and run DNA tests to prove paternity. Supporters say the law is intended to chip away at Mississippi’s teen pregnancy rate, which has long been one of the highest in the nation. But critics say that though the procedure is painless, it invades the medical privacy of the mother, father and baby. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis, File)
