72 Hours Inside Mississippi’s Lone Abortion Clinic

    ABC (includes video): Anti-abortion protestors show up outside of the last surviving abortion clinic in Mississippi, praying and pleading with women not to go inside. They are certain that what takes place there is morally wrong and that God stands with them. But on the other side of a high fence surrounding the bubble-gum-pink-colored clinic, the staff too believes they have God on their side. They blast music from large boom boxes to drown out the protestors’ pleas of “don’t kill your baby.”

    Southern Poverty Law Center: In the 1990s, she operated O’Hara’s, a bar that mainly served LGBT customers. In the community of Shannon, Miss., it was a place they could gather and socialize without fear of discrimination. After Newton decided to reopen the business recently, she went before the Shannon Board of Aldermen to get a business license – a hearing she believed would be routine.

Radical marriage platform poses big headache for Southern Democrats

    Brian Perry at Madison County Journal: In 2008, former Democratic Governor Ronnie Musgrove was running for the U.S. Senate and opposed gay-marriage even as the Mississippi Democratic Party shifted its platform position on marriage. Mississippi Democrats removed their platform plank that said, “Marriage: We believe in the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman.” The new platform was silent on marriage. But Musgrove was not silent. At one campaign stop in the Democratic Delta he said, “I’m very conservative. I am pro-life, anti-gay marriage. And again, that’s my personal belief, but I think it’s also very representative of Mississippi.” Musgrove was correct; his position was very representative of Mississippi. So, will marriage estrange Mississippi Democrats from their national party and candidates?
