He supported the law to ban abortions after twenty weeks of gestation and to permit "wrongful death" lawsuits regarding the loss of the unborn child. In 2017, he voted to authorize additional methods of execution in Mississippi and to classify the killing of first responders as first-degree murder.[4]
