We are excited to inform you of a new opportunity to promote the sanctity of human life ethic in your local area.
PLM understands pro-life issues affect every corner of the state through all stages of life. As a local pro-life advocate, you can identify and influence important life issues impacting your community more efficiently than the present Jackson based organization can. PLM is, therefore, re-structuring itself into a truly statewide network.
With this goal in mind, the PLM Board has divided the state into seven districts. Each district will have a representative to the parent State PLM Board which will be headquartered in Jackson. This new State Board can support and coordinate the outreach of the individual districts, giving a stronger voice to our pro-life message.
PLM has selected long time pro-life advocate, Janis Lane, to be our District State Liaison to help implement the District Chapter plan statewide. You can go online to the “Get Involved” page of our website to complete an application for becoming a district chapter. Janis will be your point of contact in starting your district organization. You can contact her at 601-351-5053 for more information. We are excited and thankful for her willingness to come on board to help implement this new vision for a more effective Pro-Life Mississippi.
Join us today and together we can make abortion unthinkable.
On Tuesday, July 9, Pro-Life Mississippi and Pastors for Life Mississippi co-sponsored a “Meet the Candidates Night” at Trinity Wesleyan Church, in Byram, MS. All candidates running for Governor, Lt. Governor and Attorney General were invited to the forum. Although only three candidates - Robert Foster, running for Governor, and Mark Baker and Andy Taggart, running for Attorney General, were in attendance, they provided a lively and informative discussion of the role of government in promoting a sanctity of human life ethic.
After Reverend Artie Burnett, pastor of Trinity Wesleyan Church, opened the event in prayer, he turned the conference over to master of ceremonies Dr. Matt Friedeman, Professor of Evangelical studies at Wesley Biblical Seminary. Dr. Friedeman first recognized two member of the audience, Richard White, mayor of Byram, Mississippi, and PLM President Laura Duran.
Then each candidate was given a few minutes to present a short speech about himself and his pro-life views.
Mr. Foster outlined his plan to appoint pro-life people to leadership positions in the health department and licensure bureaus, in order to enforce the pro-life laws that are currently on the books.
Attorney General candidates Baker and Taggart both expressed their willingness to vigorously defend any pro-life laws passed by the Mississippi legislature. (Indeed, every abortion regulation enacted in Mississippi, even a parental consent requirement for minors to undergo an abortion, has had to be defended in court.) They observed that our present Attorney General has not shown a great deal of enthusiasm for defending pro-life laws.
Dr.Friedeman then asked each candidate to respond to a set of questions which had been prepared in advance. The floor was then opened for questions from the audience.
PLM President Duran was pleased with the forum. “This event highlights PLM’s commitment to educating the public about pro-life issues affecting our communities."
Once again Biking for Babies made their annual ride to raise awareness and support for pregnancy resource centers across the nation. On July 8, the Southern Team started their morning in Tylertown, Mississippi and ended it in Clinton, Mississippi at DaySpring Community Church. PLM arranged for the group to tour the local Cline Center in Jackson and afterwards hosted a Meet-N-Greet potluck dinner for them at DaySpring Church.
The event was attended by about 30 people. The missionaries (riders and support crew) spoke about how they got involved and what inspires them to endure biking in sometimes 100 degree heat, for up to 100 plus miles a day. The missionaries also encouraged the youth in attendance to consider taking part in next year's event.
The evening was climaxed by PLM President, Laura Duran presenting Team Leader Griffin Wacker with a check from the Meridian Knights of Columbus.

Please join us on the south steps of the state capitol at 12:30 PM as we remember the unborn babies who died from abortion. Our keynote speaker will be Jeanhee Kang. Mrs. Kang was invited by a friend of hers to the PLM banquet. The following month her story was to be the cover story in Mississippi Christian Living. After attending the banquet she mailed back our Survey and told us how God had led her to our banquet and she wanted to get involved. After we read her story we had to ask her to come and share with everyone at Day of Remembrance.

PLM is excited about our upcoming Walk for Life. Even though it isn’t scheduled until October, planning is well underway. “Our goal is to have 50 churches form teams for the walk,” announced PLM President Laura Duran. "This is a family friendly event that will start out from St. Richard Catholic Church, proceed 2 miles to the state’s last remaining abortion facility, and end back at St. Richard's with a brunch provided by the Knights of Columbus."
Prizes will be awarded in three categories:
To be eligible for the prizes listed above, participants must raise a minimum of $500.
