Contraception and Miscarriage
When the voters of Mississippi rejected Amendment 26, a similar initiative, they did so because of concerns about things like how it would impact miscarriage and contraception. This was largely due to a campaign of deceit funded by over $1 million out of state money from Planned Parenthood — the world’s largest abortion provider who is expanding their Hattiesburg clinic even now. Besides the specific scare tactics, concerns were voiced that no one knows what the legislature will do with this and we don’t know how this will impact other areas of the law besides abortion.
After the campaign, former governor Haley Barbour said that the people behind amendment 26 should have gone through the legislature so all the particulars would be worked out as to how it would have impacted other things.
Now, the guesswork & scare tactics can be silenced with facts. This year in the Mississippi House of Representatives a comprehensive, detailed “omnibus” bill called the “Protection of Human Persons Act” was introduced.
HB 819 — linked here:

If someone who is pro-life but has concerns about how the Life at Conception Amendment would impact other areas, they can simply read this bill and find factual answers (again, not innuendo or deceptions by forces that want to keep abortion “legal” and continue their war on women & children.
And if you are trying to convince someone who was against amendment 26 to support the Life at Conception Amendment and they say “you don’t know what all this bill will do” — you can point them at this and say “Oh, yes I do” — let’s find the factual answers to your concerns
