Republican Governor of Mississippi, Tate Reeves, has made a historic move by signing pro-life measures into law, which include supporting mothers and babies. The governor proposed introducing tax returns for families to allow them to write-off childcare supplies, increasing support for pregnancy resource centers, easing the regulations and restrictions to expand childcare opportunities, extending safe haven laws, and making child support laws more stringent. Reeves aims to overturn Roe, just like Mississippi led the United States in the field of education.

The pro-life bills signed by Governor Reeves are an essential step towards protecting the unborn and providing parents with the necessary resources to support their children. House Bill 1671 has increased tax credits for crisis pregnancy centers to an enormous $10 million from $3.5 million. Mississippi also passed Senate Bill 2781, which proposes a state website that will provide resources on life-affirming organizations for pregnant women. House Bill 1318 will now permit safe haven locations for mothers to leave their children, extending the age limit to do so.
Major wins for the pro-life movement in Mississippi!
Adoption tax credit. Foster parents bill of rights. Adoption task force. CPS reforms. Investments in CPS. Pregnancy resource center tax credit expansion.

Reeves is not alone in supporting the pro-life measures. The governor is joined by Attorney General Lynn Fitch and legislative leaders that are vocal on their support for the cause. The move is being applauded by pro-life groups and organizations that advocate and support the pro-life mission to save the lives of the unborn. The steps taken by Governor Reeves will have a profound impact on society for generations to come.
Governor Reeves’ pro-life movement to protect mothers and their babies comes at the right time when the United States and the world at large are witnessing a public health crisis. It is imperative to stand together and support initiatives that aim to protect the most vulnerable members of society. Mississippi’s decision to prioritize the lives of the unborn and support mothers during pregnancy and beyond is both commendable and a winning move for the state. The move demonstrates how Reeves and his team are committed to making Mississippi one of the best states to raise a child.
