Mississippi Governor: Democrats’ ‘one mission in life is to abort children’

Oh yes, he did:

Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant (R), in defending his decision to sign a bill that could shut down Mississippi’s only abortion clinic, told conservative radio host Tony Perkins on Tuesday that Democrats’ “one mission in life is to abort children.”

“Even if you believe in abortion, the hypocrisy of the left that now tried to kill this bill, that says that I should have never signed it, the true hypocrisy is that their one mission in life is to abort children, is to kill children in the womb,” he said. “It doesn’t really matter, they don’t care if the mother’s life is in jeopardy, that if something goes wrong that a doctor can’t admit them to a ...

Quick Hit: Mississippi’s one abortion clinic may be forced into closure

Mississippi only has one abortion clinic, in the whole state, and that clinic is now at threat of being shut down with the signing of what reproductive rights activists call a TRAP (Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers)  law. Under these laws, states come up with bogus regulations for clinics to have to meet or they risk being shut down. We’ve seen this before, it’s a tactic to use alternative methods that don’t even include pro-life/anti-choice language in the legislation to shut down a clinic. But ultimately, they are direct attacks on abortion clinics, since even other health care facilities are not subject to the same regulations.

The Mississippi law requires all physicians who work at in-state abortion clinics to be board-certified ...

This is not a person (but soon it might be called one in Mississippi)

Last reminder: Today Mississippi is voting on an amendment that would take legal rights away from women and give them to fertilized eggs. Yesterday a survey found voters perfectly split–with 45% supporting the amendment and 44% opposed. That means over 10% of voters still need to hear just how extreme this initiative is–and be convinced to get to the polls.

So if you’re in Mississippi, help get out the vote. And everyone should spread the word. Tell folks to vote NO on the Personhood amendment (Initiative 26) and on the Voter ID measure (Initiative 27). Just say no, y’all.

Tomorrow: Mississippi tries to re-define “person”

Tomorrow, November 8, 2011, Mississippians have the chance to vote on an amendment to their state Constitution that might enable them to redefine the term person. They question on the ballot, will read:

“Should the term ‘person’ be defined to include every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning, or the functional equivalent thereof?”

We’ve covered this story several times in the past few weeks, but this amendment will be voted on tomorrow and I just wanted to share my rage and drum up some feminist rage at this blatant attack on reproductive justice.

Ultimately, the proponents of this amendment plan to use it as a means to overturn Roe v. Wade in the state of ...

Quick Hit: Mississippi’s “Personhood” amendment likely to pass

On November 8, voters in Mississippi will vote on a constitutional amendment declaring a fertilized egg to be a person. As election day approaches, the New York Times reports on the final push:

The amendment in Mississippi would ban virtually all abortions, including those resulting from rape or incest. It would bar some birth control methods, including IUDs and “morning-after pills” that prevent fertilized eggs from implanting in the uterus. It would also outlaw the destruction of embryos created in laboratories.

The amendment has been endorsed by candidates for governor from both major parties, and it appears likely to pass, said W. Martin Wiseman, director of the John C. Stennis Institute of Government at Mississippi State University. Legal challenges would surely ...
