Chris McDaniel (R): Ban. Has authored repeated "legislation to protect the unborn." Voted to ban abortions after 15 weeks.

Q: Healthcare: Allow Planned Parenthood to receive public funds for non-abortion health services?

Mike Espy (D): Probable yes. Says will fight for women's rights & reproductive health care. including the availability of medical services.

Cindy Hyde-Smith (R): No. Opposes public funds going toward family planning services at healthcare organizations that also provide abortions.

Chris McDaniel (R): No. "Defund Planned Parenthood." Doesn't matter that their clinic doesn't offer abortion, because their money is fungible.

Unborn children are children

The Center for Pregnancy Choices of South Central Mississippi hosted a luncheon to help bring awareness to Mississippi's Personhood Amendment. State Sen. McDaniel spoke at the event and called the Center for Pregnancy Choices a "godsend."

"They are amazing," he said. "They are on the front lines in the fight for life. They're out there letting people know there are other options aside from just aborting the child."

McDaniel said he favors the Personhood Amendment and anything else that promotes the pro-life message. "It's important to discuss it so everyone can understand it," he said. "I hope one day it leads to a culture that embraces life."

McDaniel said that millions of children have been aborted since the passage of Roe vs. Wade in 1973. "Unborn children are children," he said. "They're human beings and should be protected by law."

Amendment 26 would outlaw abortion, human cloning, embryo stem cell research, and other forms of "medical cannibalism."
