Doctor says he’s pawn in Mississippi’s abortion battle

Before he left office in January, Barbour nominated Reddix to serve on the board.

“(Barbour) knew about this association. I had given him an opportunity for me to rescind my name as a nominee and his office said that it was not an issue,” Reddix said. “Abortion is not a huge public health issue for Mississippi women.”

For four months, Reddix served on the board without a confirmation. He claims that the lieutenant governor kicked him off the board without even telling him.
