TUPELO, MISS. – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today released a statement on the passing of Dr. Freda Bush.
“Gayle and I mourn the loss of Dr. Freda Bush, a giant of the pro-life cause whose example inspired doctors, nurses, and citizens across the nation. In her 30 years as an OB-GYN, Dr. Bush worked on the front lines serving women and children, becoming a leading voice for the unborn. She championed the Mississippi Life Equality Act in 2020, which has saved countless lives. Her journey from nurse to doctor to pro-life leader was an American success story. Her impact will live on in the lives of those she inspired and the children who were born because of her tireless efforts. As we mourn her loss, we celebrate her legacy.”
