Roslin--Are You Kidding Me?
On November 8th, the voters of Mississippi will be considering a "Personhood Amendment" (Amendment #26) which would give a fertilized egg more rights than a live born woman, and would outlaw abortion and birth control.

“Be it Enacted by the People of the State of Mississippi: SECTION 1. Article III of the constitution of the state of Mississippi is hereby amended BY THE ADDITION OF A NEW SECTION TO READ: Section 33. Person defined. As used in this Article III of the state constitution, "The term 'person' or 'persons' shall include every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning or the functional equivalent thereof." This initiative shall not require any additional revenue for implementation.”

Please spread the word. Right now Mississippi is the only state with such an amendment on the ballot, but others are in the works for other states.

Ugg, this makes me regret keeping my voter registration at my parents address and not registering here in Mississippi. Unfortunately, its too late to register in time for this election. Otherwise, I could vote against it.

If Personhood USA has their way, these amendments will hit the ballot in every state in the union. >:[

Well, if it ever hits my home state, I'll be ready. The sad thing is, I fear this thing has a good chance of passing in MS. :(

The fuck? I guess they don't know enough about basic biology to realize that about 1/4 of all pregnancies end in miscarriage before the mother even knows she's pregnant. So that would make god (I assume that amendment is driven at least in part by crazed religious politicians? Forgive me if I'm wrong) the greatest abortionist in the history of ever.

You have put your finger on one of the largest of all the things that infuriate me (and there are MANY) about this piece of idiocy. If this becomes law, how long before every woman who loses a baby will come under investigation for possible murder, or at the least manslaughter?
