Mississippi Right to Life Political Action Committee today announced its support of Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves bid for re-election.

Mississippi Right to Life is an affiliate of the National Right to Life Committee, the nation’s oldest and largest pro-life organization.

“Lt. Gov. Reeves has fought to make Mississippi the safest place in America for an unborn child, and we look forward to another four years of his pro-life policies,” said Barbara Whitehead, chairwoman of Mississippi Right to Life PAC. “On Aug. 4, I urge pro-life voters to support his work to promote the family values that Mississippians hold dear.”

Under Lt. Gov. Reeves’ leadership, Mississippi has worked to protect the health and safety of women by regulating abortion-inducing drugs and requiring doctors at abortion clinics to have admitting privileges at a local hospital. Mississippi has banned abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy. He supported a law allowing patients to finalize end-of-life decisions with doctors through a Physician’s Order for Sustaining Treatment. He also has worked to encourage adoption by supporting a tax credit for families who chose to adopt a child.

“When you elected me as your lieutenant governor, I made a promise to you that I would promote the values of Mississippians, and I would protect the sanctity of life,” Lt. Gov. Reeves said. “I’m proud to say we are accomplishing those goals and making Mississippi the safest place in American for an unborn child.”
