Chris McDaniel: Unborn children are children

The Center for Pregnancy Choices of South Central Mississippi hosted a luncheon to help bring awareness to Mississippi's Personhood Amendment. State Sen. McDaniel spoke at the event and called the Center for Pregnancy Choices a "godsend."

"They are amazing," he said. "They are on the front lines in the fight for life. They're out there letting people know there are other options aside from just aborting the child."

McDaniel said he favors the Personhood Amendment and anything else that promotes the pro-life message. "It's important to discuss it so everyone can understand it," he said. "I hope one day it leads to a culture that embraces life."

McDaniel said that millions of children have been aborted since the passage of Roe vs. Wade in 1973. "Unborn children are children," he said. "They're human beings and should be protected by law."

Amendment 26 would outlaw abortion, human cloning, embryo stem cell research, and other forms of "medical cannibalism."

Haley Barbour: We made MS the safest state for an unborn child

I am proud of Mississippi [on abortion issues]: in 2004, my first year, after we worked together to enact comprehensive pro-life legislation, Americans United for Life, a national right-to-life organization, named Mississippi "the safest state in America for an unborn child."
