Washington, D.C. – Today Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America’s Candidate Fund announced its endorsement of Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves for re-election.
“When we think of bold pro-life leadership in the Dobbs era, we think of Tate Reeves. Governor Reeves works tirelessly to protect babies and serve mothers in Mississippi, setting an outstanding example for the entire nation,” said Hon. Marilyn Musgrave, SBA Pro-Life America’s vice president of government affairs. “Reeves doesn’t just talk about having pro-life values, he takes action. He has proven his courage during the most pivotal moment for life in our nation in half a century, when the people’s right to protect the unborn was restored. In just these few short years he has been a champion for the most vulnerable children, including those with Down syndrome, and for empowering families. Recently he signed eight new pro-life safety net measures into law to support foster care, improve the adoption process, and provide aid to moms and babies. We proudly stand with Governor Reeves and urge the people of Mississippi to re-elect him to see the cause of life advance even further in his next four years.”
Reeves was elected governor in 2019 after serving as treasurer and then lieutenant governor. Under his leadership, the state of Mississippi successfully defended a state law limiting abortion at 15 weeks in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization U.S. Supreme Court case. The case resulted in the overturning of Roe v. Wade, restoring the right of the people and their elected leaders to protect unborn children and their mothers in the law. Just under a year later, 25 states now have laws protecting life between conception and 12 weeks, with the potential to impact 200,000 lives a year.
A Rankin County native, Reeves is a graduate of Florence High School and an honors graduate of Millsaps College, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in economics. He and his wife Elee are the proud parents of three daughters, Tyler, Emma, and Maddie.
