Washington, D.C.: The Mississippi House and Senate have passed the Heartbeat Bill, a measure that will protect all babies once their heartbeats are detected. The bill will head to the desk of Governor Bryant who has promised to sign it.
“We are thrilled that yet another state has recognized our fundamental human right to life,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “We are grateful to Senators Angela Hill and Chris Caughman for sponsoring the bill and for their leadership on the pro-life issue. We look forward to Governor Bryant signing this bill into law.
“Phyllis Schlafly knew that the heartbeat initiative was one of the most influential and possible legislative goals for the pro-life movement. She supported it wholeheartedly and would be proud at the progress that has been made. We look forward to seeing many more states across the country vote to protect the unborn!”
