Miss. gov: Left on ‘mission’ to ‘abort children’

Updated

While defending his decision to sign a bill restricting legalized abortion, Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant made cringe-worthy allegations against the left over the controversial topic.

“The hypocrisy of the left, that now tried to kill this bill, that says I should have never signed it, the true hypocrisy is that their one mission in life is to abort children, is to kill children in the womb,” Bryant said on a conservative radio show on Tuesday. “And it doesn’t really matter, they don’t care that if the mother’s life is in jeopardy, that if something goes wrong, a doctor can’t admit them to a local hospital, that he’s not even board-certified.” You can hear the audio above.

The newly signed piece of legislation, which goes into effect July 1, requires doctors performing abortions at a clinic to be certified as an OB-GYN with admitting privileges at a hospital.

 

One Democratic leader from the state said his comments went way too far
