JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi's Republican governor had new harsh words for proponents of legalized abortion this week, saying, "their one mission in life is to abort children, is to kill children in the womb."

Gov. Phil Bryant made the comments Tuesday on the Internet talk show of Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association.

The governor was discussing a new abortion restriction law requiring doctors who perform abortions at a clinic to be certified OB-GYNs with admitting privileges at a local hospital. He said opposition to the bill came from the political left.

The House Democratic leader says Bryant's comments went "totally, totally too far," especially because Mississippi voters rejected a personhood amendment declaring life begins at conception.

The owner of Mississippi's sole abortion clinic plans legal action to block the law.
