Another home-run from RM!
WOW! Can they be any more honest with their disregard about women's health and survival? I guess the broken water lines and lack of funding of the CHIPS program doesn't warrant the same urgency?!
WOW! Dr. Barnes is so deserving of this honor!

We would like to take this time to update you on one of our proudest projects: Announcing the Dr. Helen Barnes Scholarship for Mississippi Women!
For too long, those of us in the abortion rights movement have been vulnerable in the fight for our services. And in the South, the culture war surrounding abortion is especially brutal. In Mississippi, we have been on the ‘chopping block’ numerous times, awaiting a judges’ ruling to keep our doors open to provide a much needed option, that is abortion healthcare. For so long, we’ve been defending our rights, and haven’t planned for the long haul. The Pink House Fund and JWHO have come up with a proactive plan in safeguarding the existence and the lives of women/girls seeking services by investing in future abortion providers, in establishing a scholarship to aid in the expenses of pro- choice students studying nursing, medical assisting, certified nurses aid, nurse practitioner and future OBGYN’s, in their pursuit to improve access to abortion care in the state of Mississippi. By helping offset portions of tuition for qualified applicants, we would require a (minimum) two-year employment commitment with JWHO to employ them upon graduation, where they would receive hands on training in our clinic under the tutelage of some of the most highly skilled OBGYN’s in the field.
We are pleased to announce the establishment of the Dr. Helen Barnes Scholarship for Mississippi Women, in honor of one of the state’s most beloved daughters and pioneers of Mississippi women’s healthcare. For decades, Dr. Barnes has answered the call to protect women’s health and abortion rights numerous times - be it testifying at legislative hearings or serving as the keynote speaker at pro-choice events. Dr. Barnes performed abortions in the state of Mississippi long before Roe v. Wade. An alumnus of Howard University College of Medicine, Dr. Barnes returned to Mississippi as the states first African American woman physician, and dedicated her career to women’s health. She was the founder of the UMMC’s Primary Care Clinic for Women, became the University of Mississippi Medical Center’s first African American faculty member, served as Chairwoman on the statewide Health Coordinating Council and is a founding member of Jackson Women’s Health Organization. We are honored for her unwavering dedication, commitment, and tireless efforts to champion and safeguard the rights of Mississippi women to choose abortion.
We can think of no more powerful way to continue her legacy as a founder of Jackson Women’s Health Organization (JWHO), than by establishing a scholarship in her honor. The Helen Barnes Scholarship for Mississippi Women is the first to be established by an independent provider in honor of an African American woman. And the first step of our plan in safeguarding our existence, empowering local women and girls, and protecting access to abortion in Mississippi.
We are tired of always defending our rights. This proactive partnership will allow JWHO to be less vulnerable to anti-choice legislative efforts, increase the services they provide to patients, and invest in the future of the pro-choice movement by training future abortion providers to share their knowledge and training in areas where abortion healthcare options are scarce. We strongly support investing in the women/girls of MS in becoming stronger, more confident and engaged in achieving reproductive justice for ALL. And are looking forward to funding and supporting the next generation of abortion providers via a partnership with JWHO. We kindly ask for your continued support by making a donation to The Helen Barnes Scholarship for Mississippi Women today.
