A proposed life-saving bill passed a state Senate vote in Mississippi on Wednesday bringing the state one step closer to significantly reducing the number abortions performed.
The bill would make abortion illegal after a heartbeat is detected around six weeks into a pregnancy. The bill would allow abortions for medical emergencies, but reportedly not for cases of rape or incest.
Fortunately, both the House and the Senate proposed similar bills – each passing their respective body. HB-528 sponsored by Rep. Robert Foster is almost identical to the Senate bill co-sponsored by Sen. Angela Hill and Sen. Chris Caughman, reports Life News.
The Republican Governor, Phil Bryant has stated that he would “sign a bill banning abortion as early as six weeks,” according to Clarion Ledger. Tweeting out in January his support for the pro-life movement, Gov. Bryant said “It’s time to pass a Heart Beat Bill in Mississippi and stop this madness about when life begins.”
Governor Bryant also tweeted yesterday in support of the bills:
I’ve often said I want Mississippi to be the safest place for an unborn child in America. I appreciate the leadership of the MS House and Senate, along with members of the Legislature, for passing the fetal heartbeat bills today. I look forward to signing this act upon passage.

This huge win for the pro-life fight makes Mississippi just the second state to ban abortion after a heartbeat is detected, following Iowa.
Of course, the abortion giant issued the response from Felicia Brown-Williams, the director of Planned Parenthood Southeast Advocates:
“These bills would ban abortion — outlawing the procedure before most women even know they’re pregnant. Individual rights and freedoms go to the heart of who we are as a country, including the right to access safe and legal abortion. Mississippians should be able to make their own most personal health care decisions without politicians controlling when, how, or why.”
While the bill on the Senate floor was debated, the question of how much a life is worth was raised from a Republican Senator. Mississippi previously passed a 15 week abortion ban which was taken to court many times. Democrat Sen. Derrick Simmons questioned Republican Sen. Joey Fillingane on his knowledge if he “was aware Mississippi has spent $1.2 million defending the 15-week abortion ban in court.” At this point, a supporter of the bill, Sen. Michael Watson chimed in rhetorically, “Is it worth $1.2 million? What is a life worth?” according to Live Action.
As Gov. Bryant expressed in his tweet, he is looking forward to signing legislation that protects life inside the womb.

San Francisco Dumps Environmentalism, Bans Reusable Bags at Grocery Stores During Coronavirus Pandemic
Environmentalism is thrown by the wayside during a crisis.
The ultra left-wing city of San Francisco, Calif. is bailing on environmentalism during a time of great crisis, banning the use of reusable plastic bags at grocery stores temporarily due to concerns regarding the spread of coronavirus.
The San Francisco Department of Public Health has issued an ordinance preventing city residents from taking reusable items into the public and using them in essential stores. They believe this will make it more difficult for germs to proliferate throughout the city.
“There is no effective treatment or cure yet for the disease, testing ability while improving remains constrained, and San Francisco’s health care system is at ongoing risk of being overwhelmed. For these reasons, it is imperative that San Francisco not only extend the duration of its stay at home order but also further limit essential activities and extend social distancing requirements outside the home,” the ordinance reads.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed has not hesitated to shut down civil society in order to combat the spread of coronavirus. She has effectively tossed environmentalism to the wayside, showing that the frequent leftist bugaboo is not actually a pressing concern.
“I can’t reiterate enough how important it is for all of us to continue to comply, for all of us to continue to be good citizens, to cooperate,” said Breed, who has issued lockdown edicts that last until at least May 3.
Today we officially extended the stay at home health order through May 3. I want to thank the people of San Francisco for continuing to do their part to save lives. I know this isn’t easy but we will get through it together. pic.twitter.com/4rggISBnQv

In 2007, San Francisco was the first city in America to ban the use of plastic shopping bags. The leftists on the Board of Supervisors enacted this prohibition to satisfy Mother Earth and potentially start a trend throughout the country.
“I am astounded and surprised by the worldwide attention,” Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi said at the time, according to the SFGate. “Hopefully, other cities and other states will follow suit.”
The grocery store lobby in the state came out against the regulation at the time, believing that it would accomplish little to help the environment and only serve to frustrate consumers.
“We’re disappointed that the Board of Supervisors is going down this path,” said Kristin Power, who worked as the vice president of government relations for the California Grocers Association.
“It will frustrate recycling efforts and will increase both consumer and retailer costs. There’s also a real concern about the availability and quality of compostable bags,” she added.
By instituting their emergency measures, San Francisco has demonstrated that environmental concerns are not particularly important in the grand scheme of things. These lofty goals are put on the back burner when a real crisis, such as the coronavirus panic, takes precedence.
