CHOOSE LIFE MISSISSIPPI RAISES $4 MILLION
Choose Life Mississippi, a non-profit organization based in Ridgeland, MS, has raised $4 million in their fight to protect unborn children.
In the 20 years since their inception, Choose Life Mississippi has raised $4 million to protect unborn children. 166,510 car tags have been sold to people across the state who share the same dream. This achievement is monumental and one that Choose Life Mississippi does not take for granted. Every tag sold has been instrumental in the fight for unborn lives in Mississippi.
June 24, 2023 marks the first year anniversary of the Dobbs Decision, a Mississippi case that overturned Roe vs. Wade. “Now that Mississippi has laws to protect our unborn babies and the last abortion clinic is finally closed, women need our help more than ever,” says President and Founder Terri Herring. “Pregnancy Resource Centers are a crucial resource for women facing unplanned pregnancies.”
Choose Life Mississippi was launched in 2003. The goal was simple: to save the lives of unborn children by supporting their mothers during their pregnancies and beyond. Choose Life Mississippi achieves this goal through the sale of “Choose Life” tags. Funds provide vital resources to pregnancy centers across the state and provide the support that women need to become the mothers they hope to be. There are over 30 pregnancy care centers in the state of Mississippi. These centers meet the physical, emotional and medical needs of women in need by providing free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and compassionate, sound advice about pregnancy and parenting. They also provide adoption counseling.
Supporting women has always been a goal central to Choose Life’s mission, but now more than ever, it is imperative that women are offered guidance, resources and quality care early in pregnancy. You can be a part of the solution by purchasing a “Choose Life” tag or the new “Adoption Tag” to provide funding for these centers. For more information go to ChooseLifeMS.org.

June 24, 2022, marked a fateful day in the fight for unborn children. The U.S. Supreme Court elected to overturn the landmark case Roe v. Wade, giving state governments the ability to outlaw abortion in their state. As a result, abortion is now illegal in 13 states. This decision was made due to the dedication of brave individuals and organizations, like Choose Life Mississippi, who fought tirelessly for 50 years to see an end to Roe v. Wade.
Still, Choose Life Mississippi knows there is more work to do. Even Post-Roe, abortion remains legal in parts of the U.S., and pregnancy centers are a crucial resource for women facing unplanned pregnancies. Supporting women in crisis has always been a goal central to Choose Life Mississippi’s mission, but now more than ever, it is imperative to Choose Life Mississippi that these women are offered guidance, resources and the highest quality care as early in their pregnancy as possible. This is made possible through the sale of ‘Choose Life’ car tags and the funding they provide for Mississippi’s pregnancy centers.
The Sanctity of Human Life Month
Churches can participate in pro-life activities for Sanctity of Life the entire month of January. On the Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, churches across America pray for women and their pre-born children in states where abortion is still legal.
Please take a moment to join us in remembering the lives that have been lost due to abortion and to pray for women in crisis. Even though Roe v. Wade was overturned, abortion is an available option for so many women across the nation. Pray for women as they will be making the decision to abort their child about every 6 seconds.
