A pro-life group is praising Mississippi’s Republican Gov. Tate Reeves for signing into law more than a half dozen bills designed to make it easier for families to adopt and care for children as the pro-life movement shifts its focus in the aftermath of a major national change in abortion policy.

Reeves’ office announced Wednesday that he had signed seven “pro-mom and pro-life” bills into law. The legislation he approved increases the tax credits available to pregnancy centers, establishes tax credits for expenses related to adopting children, creates a task force that will make recommendations regarding changes to state laws about adoption and foster care, separates the Mississippi Department of Child Protection Services from the Mississippi Department of Human Services and creates a bill of rights for foster parents.
