Thank God for the South. A southern state recently passed legislation that puts the rest of the country to shame. Their respect for the rights of all Americans should become an example for the rest of us.
In this day and age, we are almost used to seeing our rights infringed. Liberals want to take away our guns. Big government violates our privacy. Companies sell our information. Even college campuses attack free speech.
But in our deep South, a state house of representatives just passed a law that preserves Americans’ most important right. This new law pushes back at Democrats who have spent decades trying to strip this right from us.
From Daily Wire:
A major pro-life win took place on the Mississippi House floor on International Women’s Day: an approved 15-week ban on abortion, the most pro-life regulation in the nation.
On Thursday, the Gestational Age Act passed 75 to 34 on the House floor after passing through the Senate two days prior.
“Except in a medical emergency or in the case of a severe fetal abnormality, a person shall not intentionally or knowingly perform, induce, or attempt to perform or induce an abortion of a fetus if the probable gestational age of the fetus has been determined to be greater than 15 weeks,” reports Rewire of the Gestational Age Act.
Pro-life Republican Governor Phil Bryant says he will sign the bill into law.
This is a huge win for all Americans that value human life. The barbaric and outdated practice of abortion has no place in the United States. Unborn children deserve to be protected, the same as any American. The fact that we still allow abortions in the United States is unacceptable.
Mississippi’s overwhelmingly pro-life government is striking back for all Americans. This law will protect an unborn child. Mothers who are unfit or unwilling to care for a baby will be able to find alternatives to aborting the pregnancy, such as adoption. This will protect the life of someone who cannot defend him or herself.
Make no mistake: the abortion lobbyists will fight back. Even with the governor signing it into law, Planned Parenthood or others will try to challenge it in court. They will probably not get far, given the strong pro-life stance of this state.
So how about the rest of the country? Mississippi has passed some of the strongest pro-life legislation we’ve seen in a long time. What about all other state lawmakers and leaders that claim to be pro-life? Mississippi has just set the bar. It’s time they all followed their lead.
