On Tuesday, November 8, Mississippians will vote on a measure that would ban abortion care and possibly most types of birth control in the Magnolia State.
I’m talking about Initiative 26, Mississippi’s “personhood” ballot measure. “Personhood” measures are one of anti-choice extremists’ new, backdoor ways to ban abortion care.
These extremists are so cruel that they would force a woman who survives rape or incest to carry a pregnancy caused by her attacker.
We can’t stand by and let this attack on the women of Mississippi go unanswered.
NARAL Pro-Choice America is standing together with Mississippians for Healthy Families to stop Initiative 26.
Mississippians for Healthy Families is a coalition of women and men, doctors, attorneys, and faith leaders. They are working day and night to educate voters on the extreme medical and legal ramifications of Initiative 26 because Mississippians need more access to health care, not less.
Here’s how you can help:
And if you live in Mississippi (or know people who do), be sure to go out and vote NO on Initiative 26 on Tuesday, November 8.
