The governor was discussing a new abortion restriction law requiring doctors who perform abortions at a clinic to be certified OB-GYNs with admitting privileges at a local hospital. He said opposition to the bill came from the political left.

The House Democratic leader says Bryant’s comments went “totally, totally too far,” especially because Mississippi voters rejected a personhood amendment declaring life begins at conception.

“The hypocrisy of the left, that now tried to kill this bill, that says I should have never signed it, the true hypocrisy is that their one mission in life is to abort children, is to kill children in the womb,” Bryant told [radio host Tim] Wildmon. “And it doesn’t really matter, they don’t care that if the mother’s life is in jeopardy, that if something goes wrong, a doctor can’t admit them to a local hospital, that he’s not even board-certified.”

During his campaign last fall, Bryant co-chaired with Wildmon’s father, [American Family Association] founder Donald Wildmon, an effort to pass a state constitutional amendment saying life begins at fertilization. Supporters of that “personhood” amendment believed it would provide a new avenue to challenge legalized abortion.

Days before 58 percent of Mississippi voters rejected the measure, Bryant appeared at a pro-personhood rally in Tupelo with Donald Wildmon and U.S. Rep Alan Nunnelee, a Tupelo Republican. There, Bryant said if voters were to reject the amendment, “Satan wins.” He called the campaign “a battle of good and evil of Biblical proportion.”

Bryant's spokesman says the governor isn't backing down from what he said and in a statement says, "Gov. Bryant has not hidden from his commitment to defending life, and he will continue working toward his stated goal of making Mississippi abortion-free. His comments were directed at those who insist that the unborn do not have the right to life."

Bryant went on to say in the interview he wants to end abortion in the state which has been his position since he began his campaign for governor.

"That's what I said and that's what I intend to do," said Bryant.
