On Thursday, Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant signed a bill into law that would outlaw the abortion of unborn children when their heartbeats become detectable. Unsurprisingly, the Regressive Left is outraged that the most basic human rights would be granted to human beings that they don’t consider “real people.” I’m sure the levels of anger of this decision mirrors the same reactions from the Pro-Slavery movement when the first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
We will all answer to the good Lord one day. I will say in this instance, “I fought for the lives of innocent babies, even under threat of legal action.” https://t.co/4bHEmCqN74

The Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) has responded, calling this protection of human lives “blatantly unconstitutional” and promising to sue to block this life-saving measure before it can take effect on the 1st of July. Governor Bryant has responded saying that he will fight for “innocent babies, even under the threat of legal action.” Ironically, the CRR’s mission statement states that it is committed to “use the law to advance reproductive freedom as a fundamental human right that all governments are legally obligated to protect, respect, and fulfill,” yet they are committed to denying their fellow human beings the most fundamental of human rights because they don’t respect them based on their age, location, and level of development.
Mississippi has already been quite progressive when it comes to protecting the vulnerable, reducing the number of abortion clinics in the state down to one. In 2019 alone, 11 states have enacted similar heartbeat bills to protect the lives of the unborn. Not realizing that she was sharing absolutely fantastic news, CRR spokeswoman Kelly Krause lamented, “It is already nearly impossible to get an abortion in Mississippi and this law acts as an outright ban given all the other laws.”
I hate to break it to Kelly and her fellow anti-life activists, but if you think you have the “right” to terminate the life of another human being, you’re on the wrong side of history. Calling this a “reproductive rights issue” is like the Confederate States calling slavery a “property rights issue.”
