MAGA Hot Mic: MS House Speaker Philip Gunn
July 5, 2022
Washington Post: “Miss. lawmaker says 12-year-old incest victims should carry pregnancies to term”
Today’s MAGA Hot Mic moment comes from Mississippi House Speaker Philip Gunn.
When asked by a reporter whether a “12-year-old molested by her family members should carry that pregnancy to term,” Philip Gunn said: “That is my personal belief.”
Gunn joined elected Republicans from across the country in making his out of touch and extreme views clear when he reiterated that Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban “does not include an exception for incest” and he does not think it should be revisited.

REPORTER: “So that 12-year-old child molested by her father and uncle should carry that child to term?”
GUNN: “That is my personal belief. I believe life begins at conception.”
