ACLU, Planned Parenthood combine to fight Mississippi constitutional amendment

Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union have joined forces to create the pro-abortion “Mississippians for Healthy Families” with a goal of defeating a constitutional amendment limiting abortion in the Magnolia State.

Christine Dhanagom of LifeSiteNews writes that “Yes on 26,” a coalition of anti-abortion groups, obtained a copy of the Mississippians for Healthy Families’ Statement of Organization for a Political Committee from the Secretary of State’s office.”

The official filing lists Nsombi Lambright, Kay Scott and Barry Chase as the organization’s officers.


“Lambright is the Executive Director of the ACLU of Mississippi,” notes Dhangagom, “Scott is the CEO of Planned Parenthood Southeast, which covers Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi; and Chase is the President of Memphis Regional Planned Parenthood in Tennessee.”

Chase’s clinic made headlines in 2009 when one of his employees was caught in a videotaped sting coaching an actress posing as a 14-year-old girlm explaining to her how to lie about the age of her boyfriend — who the girl had said was 31.

A space on the official filing which requests a description of the purpose of the committee and the identification of “affiliated or connected organizations” is left blank, reports Dhangagom. Lambright is listed as the director and Scott as the treasurer.


Yes on 26 notes on its website the financial investment that Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, has made in the Mississippi campaign:

“Abortion, to put it plainly, is a very lucrative business, and this has been true from the beginning. By last count, Planned Parenthood (a tax-exempt organization!) has $951 million in total assets Kay Scott and her partners in the abortion industry have a very good reason to make sure Amendment 26 doesn’t bring an end to their payday in Mississippi.”

“The organization “Mississippians for Healthy Families” is simply a front organization for Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, who are attempting to prevent a pro-life amendment from being added to the state constitution, according to a state pro-life organization,” concludes Dhangagom.


The Yes on 26 website also notes:

“John Powell, the ACLU’s national legal director, says he considers abortion to be the ACLU’s number one priority; the defense of the First Amendment, (the alleged heart and soul of the ACLU’s mission), was listed third, after civil rights. Why? Simply follow the money. Defending abortion ‘rights’ is a much more lucrative venture than defending free-speech.”

“Mississipians for Healthy Families” meanwhile accused Yes on 26 of setting up a “fake website.” Indeed, “Yes on 26″ uses the Internet address as well as

If passed, the Mississippi amendment will define a person as “every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning or the functional equivalent thereof.”

    I am against abortion in all its aspects. The child is not to blame for the wants and desires of adults. Even though some children are conceived on questionable conditions. It is God’s ultimate decsion what happens to that child either thru its own parents or adoptive parents. Even if it is a case of rape, incest or natural selection God is the ultimate say on the issue.

    The Mississippi amendment failed overwhelmingly by 58 to 42 per cent.

    Good. This ridiculous law would have made birth control pills illegal.

    That would have been n.u.t.s.

    This is ridiculous if the law have been approved. For God’s sake.
