Author of Mississippi Pro-life Law Comments
We reached out to the author of the Mississippi pro-life law that led to the overturning of Roe for her thoughts on Friday’s historic decision. Mississippi state representative Becky Currie is a nurse who ran for office and used the opportunity to introduce the law that defeated mandated abortion in America. Intercessor, we never know how God will use our obedience.
Here is what Currie said:
Today the Supreme Court made the correct ruling. It was never in the Constitution that there was a right to have an abortion. I am not able to put into words how I feel today. I have written a bill that saved millions of babies lives. God has had His hand on this bill since the beginning and I hope He is looking down saying job well done.
Currie joined IFA in Washington, DC in December on the eve of the oral arguments in the Supreme Court. She told us that she introduced many pro-life bills during her time as a state representative. The bill at issue in Dobbs was different for her. She said that when this bill was passed, she sensed that “this was it.”
Praise God! She was right.
