Hosemann receives state Right to Life endorsement

Mississippi Right to Life has endorsed Delbert Hosemann in his re-election campaign for Lt. Governor. 

“Our endorsement is recognition of your years of dedicated service in defense of human life for innocent unborn babies, the elderly, and the disabled,” said  Barbara Whitehead, President of Mississippi Right to Life, wrote in the endorsement letter to Hosemann.  “We appreciate your 100 percent pro-life commitment and 100 percent pro-life voting record through the years,”

Hosemann responded by saying the state has a significant record of supporting pro-life legislation and supporting children and families.  

“Mississippi led in overturning Roe and our leadership on this issue will not end at birth,” said Hosemann. “Thank you to Mississippi Right to Life and Mrs. Whitehead for their steadfast support for more than 25 years.”

As Lt. Governor, Hosemann appointed a nine-member study group to hold hearings, hear testimony, and draft legislation related to the issues facing women, children, and families. In December, the group unveiled a litany of post-Dobbs, pro-life legislation, much of which has since been signed into law.
