The history here of how abortion began in Mississippi fully seven years before Roe v. Wade,is remarkable.  The “seed of the serpent” is the ultimate incrementalist.  We are not ignorant of the devil’s schemes and we know that one little word will fell him –   Jesus!  How awesome and marvelous is our task to stand upon God’s Word in times such as these.

Thank You Jesus! ~ Flip

Why was it important for us to be here, of all places, in Mississippi?

What Started Here Ends Here
Initiative 26 To Reverse Mississippi’s Abortion Role

Here’s an important lesson in America’s abortive history: Mississippi was the first to start legalizing abortion (incrementally) and will be the first to end it (entirely.) 

Jackson, MS 11-4-11 – America’s abortion holocaust began in Mississippi on May 8, 1966. 

Forty-five years ago Mississippi became the first state to decriminalize the killing of a child by an abortionist. The “exception” for rape marked for death children who allegedly did not deserve the protection of law. A 3,500-year-old legal principle distinguishing civilization from barbarism was that “children shall not be put to death for the crimes of their fathers.” Throwing aside this foundation of due process and equal protection under the law, our state opened up the floodgates of America’s holocaust in which abortionists nationwide have now killed more than 50 million children.

The approval of (see it here:) House Bill 562 in 1966 and its taking effect 30 days later on June 8, 1966, put a so-called exception into state law defining “abortion” as “a felony unless the… pregnancy was caused by rape.” In the seven years before Roe v. Wade, 19 states began the decriminalization of child killing by permitting abortion for various reasons, tragically beginning with Mississippi (and followed by Colorado, California, Oregon, North Carolina, New York, Alaska, Hawaii, Washington, Florida, Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Kansas, Maryland, New Mexico, South Carolina, and Virginia). It is false to claim that “Roe ushered in the age of abortion,” for it was the states, with Mississippi first, which began the process that expanded as far as New York allowing abortion on demand through six months. 

Now the states must end what the states unleashed. If it was a state’s right to begin it, it must therefore be a state’s right to end it.

While the ancient Code of Hammurabi legislated the killing of children for the crimes of their fathers (as in Hammurabi laws 210230, and 116), America’s Judeo-Christian legal heritage corrected this injustice. For the Law of Moses states at Deuteronomy 24:16, “Fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor shall the children be put to death for their fathers…” A Hebrew prophet affirmed this, writing, “The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son…” at Ezekiel 18:20.

Personhood corrects the cruelty and grave injustice brought about by Mississippi declaring some children unworthy of protection. Please Vote Yes on 26 on Tuesday so every baby can be protected by love and by law.
