Phil Bryant on Abortion
Make Mississippi safest place in America for an unborn child
After a heated floor debate, the Senate passed a bill 35-14˙to ban abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, bringing the state one step closer to enacting the most restrictive abortion ban in the country. In a statement Gov. Bryant reiterated his support
for the measure.
"I have repeatedly said, I want Mississippi to be the safest place in America for an unborn child," Bryant said. "House Bill 1510 will help us achieve that goal, and I encourage the House to pass it and look forward to signing it.

Supports the Personhood Initiative: protect the unborn
Phil is a vocal supporter for protecting the rights of the unborn through his efforts to help the Personhood Initiative, as well as defending Mississippi's right to opt out of federally funded abortions under the Obama healthcare bill.
It should be our goal to end abortion in Mississippi. The Personhood Amendment will be a turning point for protecting the unborn in our state. I commit to doing everything I can legally do as Governor to support the rights of the unborn.
