WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) today welcomed Mississippians in the nation’s capital to participate in the 2022 March for Life, greeting students and issuing an optimistic statement for the annual pro-life advocacy campaign.

Hyde-Smith on Thursday met with March for Life students from Cathedral School and St. Mary’s Basilica in Natchez.  Under an “Equality Begins in the Womb” theme, Friday’s march comes on the heels of U.S. Supreme Court consideration of Mississippi’s abortion law, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

“With hope and prayer, thousands have marched each year for decades at the annual March for Life.  Today, we march with greater hope and prayer for the Supreme Court to show grace to the unborn in the Dobbs case,” Hyde-Smith said.

Hyde-Smith, who this week received an A+ rating on the Susan B. Anthony List National Pro-Life Scorecard, penned an op-ed on the legal, ethical, and moral legitimacy of Mississippi’s abortion law prior to the Supreme Court hearing arguments on that law on Dec. 1, 2021.  Read her piece here.
