Today Mississippians vote on a controversial issue that would give full legal rights to undeveloped zygotes. The controversial Proposition 26 in Mississippi would redefine the word "person" in the state constitution to include "every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning, or the functional equivalent thereof." In addition to effectively criminalizing abortion, the measure would ban intrauterine devices and certain forms of birth control, complicate the legality of stem cell research and in vitro fertilization and expose pregnant women and their doctors to daunting lawsuits and investigations. Because actually educating people about sex would be wrong, just ignoring it and criminalizing it is the best way to handle it. Ask Bristol Palin.
According to Personhood USA, the campaign is currently gathering signatures to put similar measures on the ballot in Montana, Florida and Oregon. Personhood advocates have filed personhood language measures in Ohio, Nevada and California, and lawmakers have initiated or soon plan to initiate equivalent legislation in Alabama, Wisconsin and Michigan.
GOP lawmakers have introduced three bills that would extend personhood rights to fertilized eggs. Sixty-three House Republicans signed onto Rep. Paul Broun's (R-Ga.) "Sanctity of Human Life Act," which mirrors the Mississippi personhood language. GOP presidential candidate and Category 5 Moron Michele Bachmann (Minn.) cosponsored Rep. Duncan Hunter's (R-Calif.) personhood bill, which would allow "the prosecution of any woman for the death of her unborn child," (really?, so wha about miscarriages, what a bunch of fools), and Mississippi's own Sen. Roger Wicker (R) introduced a bill in the Senate that defines a person from the moment of fertilization. Because they know more about science than say, scientists. This is such a lame attempt to try to challenge and overturn Roe V. Wade, and it will fail, just as every attempt since 1973 has failed. So much for the jobs. ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES.

So what's next? Punishing masturbators because it will harm the little swimmers because it will potentially hurt a fertilized egg? Is fellatio considered mass cannibalism? When are the fanatics in this country going to stop? When will we stop them? I guess they won't be happy till we're faced with over-popul
Welcome to the Islamophication of America. While we hear many of the Tea Baggers spout off fecal matter about Sharia Law, mostly gross misinformation, I feel that we have nothing to fear from Sharia Law. But we do have something to fear from the Laws that the Evangelica

GOP its time you pick your poison, which will you choose to fight for, other peoples unborn fetuses or cutting government spending back on public assistance programs that now have more people than ever relying on them. Try and keep up with this round of logic...You cant have both you silly, inbred kids, because all those unborn fetuses and their parents will definitely need public assistance for the child you forced them to have. Here is another GOP question, If a fetus is a person and a corporatio
If Mississippi is going to set the standard by which all other states have to abide, then Heaven help us all.
