Attorney General Lynn Fitch Moves to Ensure Lives Are Saved by Enacting the Will of the People

Washington, D.C.Unborn children and their mothers will be protected throughout pregnancy in Mississippi starting July 7 as Attorney General Lynn Fitch certified the state’s existing pro-life law this morning. The law takes effect 10 days from certification. Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America praised Fitch in a statement:

“We rejoice with Attorney General Fitch and the people of Mississippi as their right to protect unborn babies and honor mothers in the law is restored. In Mississippi and in states across the country, lives are being saved immediately by ensuring that the people have a voice,” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Attorney General Fitch’s bold leadership played an instrumental role in this great human rights victory and we’ve been proud to stand together, including a partnership to support more than 30 life-affirming pregnancy centers across Mississippi. We are just getting started as we continue working together to build on the vast network of pro-life organizations that save lives through their love and service to both mother and child.”

With Mississippi’s action today, broad legal protections for unborn children and mothers are in effect in 12 states, with at least eight others poised to follow swiftly. SBA Pro-Life America will continue to track the status of pro-life laws in post-Roe America.

Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America is a network of more than one million pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
