On May 6th, rape survivors and children conceived in rape will gather at the Mississippi State Capitol to remember that 50 years ago, on Mother’s Day of 1966, abortion was legalized in the state for reasons of rape and incest.
The Freedom March Life Wins event is being organized by Juda Myers, founder of Choices4Life – an organization which supports women and girls who become pregnant as a result of rape, and also offers support to those who are raising children conceived in rape.
“I felt like someone stabbed me in the heart,” Myers said. Myers felt so strongly because, at age 46, she learned that she was conceived in rape.
Two years later she met her birth mother who tearfully recounted how she was gang raped as a young woman and became pregnant with Myers.
Myers’ birth mother lovingly placed her for adoption after feeling pressured to have an abortion.
