GOV. BRYANT: I WANT TO TELL THE LORD I FOUGHT FOR INNOCENT BABIES
Fear of God is more important than fear of man for Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant. Wednesday he tweeted: “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,’” in response to a group challenging his state’s new Heartbeat Bill.
He signed a “heartbeat bill” Thursday that will make abortion illegal in the state after a fetal heartbeat is detected.
