Be wary of voting for GOP

In November, Mississippians by a margin of 57 percent to 43 percent told the nation, “No, we don’t want to be forced to have the baby of a rapist, and yes we do want access to all methods of birth control and IVF.”

These same voters put Phil Bryant and Tate Reeves, spokesperson and advocate of personhood, respectively, in positions to lead our state. One of the first things they tried to do was close the Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the only place in Mississippi which performs abortions.

Immediately before the Republican Convention in Tampa, a 112-member Republican committee was busy behind closed doors writing the very same plan for our country.

If you voted “No” on Amendment 26 because you thought it went too far for our state, then think long and hard before voting for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Both of them have said they support a national personhood amendment.

This issue is too important and too dangerous to leave it to chance that it will be imposed on unwilling Mississippians.
