In front of Rainbow food co-op: “You’ve got a friend in Jesus” Mississippi plate. I got a “namaste” from the gentle hippie manning the register.
In front of the Women’s Health Clinic which provides abortions (the last one in the state). The last time I was in Jackson, the fate of the clinic was in the balance. Due to de facto TRAP laws, the state was poised to shut this clinic down. However, an April ruling allowed the clinic to remain open.
There is now an active and effective clinic escort program as well as a response from persons of faith to the anti-abortion protesters who are there every day.
