Mississippi Right to Life is about saving lives

Mississippi Right to Life (MSRtL) was formed on December 28th, 1977 by a group of citizens of Mississippi wanting to restore protection for unborn babies after the infamous Roe vs Wade decision of the US Supreme Court that legalized abortion on demand.

The organization was formed to work for the protection of innocent human life in the cases of abortion, infanticide and euthanasia. The focus of the organization is in the areas of education, legislation and political action to respect and protect human life.

Working with elected officials at all levels of government, MSRtL has been able to support the enactment of many pro-life statutes such as informed consent legislation, fetal homicide, partial-birth abortion ban, a law protecting unborn babies who can feel pain and a ban on internet abortions. With the leadership of MSRtL, the overall abortion rate and number have continued to decline in Mississippi.

Mississippi Right to Life has a state-wide board of directors and officers and is the state affiliate of the National Right to Life Committee based in Washington, DC.
