Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant (R) spoke to Family Research Council president Tony Perkins on American Family Radio about a new law aimed at closing the state's only abortion clinic. Bryant's TRAP (targeted regulations of abortion providers) bill will make it more difficult for the clinic to employ out-of-state doctors; it depends on these doctors since doctors from Mississippi face constant harassment and threats. Bryant was also a supporter of the failed "personhood" amendment referendum. Listen as Bryant states that the left's "one mission in life is to abort children" and poses as the protector of women from "fly-in abortionists":
BRYANT: You would think that Barack Obama and all those on the left that love so much to talk about women’s health care would rush to support this bill, would just say, ‘absolutely we want the strongest health care, we want admissions privileges, we want that women that is going through that abortion for her life and safety to be paramount,’ well it should be the paramount of the child.
Even if you believe in abortion, the hypocrisy of the left that now tried to kill this bill, that says that I should have never signed it, the true hypocrisy is that their one mission in life is to abort children, is to kill children in the womb. It doesn’t really matter, they don’t care if the mother’s life is in jeopardy, that if something goes wrong that a doctor can’t admit them to a local hospital, that he’s not even board certified. We passed that bill and I think you’ll see other states follow and when that happens at least these fly-in abortionists are going to be regulated under the state laws of the Medical Procedures Act here in the state of Mississippi as they should be across the nation.
PERKINS: Well the driving factor is profit for many of them.
