Mississippi, America's poorest, fattest and most religious state, is aiming to set yet another record in U.S. history – to become the nation's first abortion-free state.

And the Rev. Flip Benham of Operation Save America says his organization is working hard to make it happen.
In a press statement on Thursday, Benham noted that Mississippi currently has a strong desire to become the first abortion-free state in America and "authorities" were moving to shut down the state's only abortion center in Jackson run by Planned Parenthood. Details of the move are expected to be revealed at a press conference in Hattiesburg on Friday evening.
"Mississippians have done everything possible to eliminate the horror of abortion from their state. From the Governor, through the Congress, to the Health Department, the electorate has sounded a clear trumpet call to end abortion in the state of Mississippi," noted Benham in the statement.
The church in Mississippi, he said, had answered the call to rid the state of abortion by keeping tabs on the activities of Planned Parenthood which has benefitted from significant federal funding to keep operating in the state.
