A guest joins the resolution in support of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization | Mississippi Politics and Current Affairs

“I commend the judges for their judicial insight and for taking a bold step to protect the lives of our unborn children,” Guest said.

Congressman Michael Guest (R-MS) joined Rep. Lisa McClain (R-MI) in a House resolution supporting the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in the Dobbs vs. Jackson Case.

“Our Declaration of Independence establishes the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and the Supreme Court’s wise decision upholds a cornerstone of our democracy and will save countless lives. I commend the judges for their judicial insight and for taking a bold step to protect the lives of our unborn children,” Rep. Guest said.

“There is nothing more important than standing up for the unborn child and fighting for life,” Rep. McClain said. “The Supreme Court made the right decision in the Dobbs case by declaring that there is no constitutional right to abortion. I applaud the courage of judges to uphold their constitutional duty despite intimidation tactics and threats of violence. Congress should recognize this historic decision and celebrate this victory for life. »

Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey] may be reconsidered and, if necessary, canceled in whole or in part. »

Congressman Guest said the Dobbs vs. Jackson is an important step in the defense of unborn children and he is grateful to have the opportunity to support their right to life.

“Mississippi remains united in our desire to protect the lives of our unborn children, which is why the Mississippi delegation came together to support the right to life movement in an amicus brief to the Supreme Court of the United States,” Guest said.
