On November 8th, 2011, Mississippians will vote on Proposition 26, a ballot measure that, if passed, would alter the state constitution, redefining the word “person” to include every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning, or the functional equivalent thereof. What supporters of Prop 26 aren’t telling you is that if enacted, the measure is likely to hurt ALL pregnant women.
As this video, this commentary (hattiesburgamerican.com/article/20111023/OPINION/110230318/Con-Proposition-26-Dangerous-all-pregnant-women), Proposition 26: Dangerous to all pregnant women, and this Real Answers fact sheet (
advocatesforpregnantwomen.org/issues/in_the_states/mississippi_real_answers_on_prop_26.php) make clear, Proposition 26 will affect all pregnant women including those who go to term.
An organization called the American Life League (“ALL”) has taken issue with our description of the cases we discuss in the video and the fact that each and every one of them was the result of claims asserting personhood for fertilized eggs, embryos, and fetuses. Sadly, everything we said is true. For documentation and more information about each of these cases please go to: American Life League: Anti-Abortion "Personhood" Measures Really Will Hurt All Pregnant Women (advocatesforpregnantwomen.org/ALL_PersonhoodMeasuresReallyDoHurt.pdf).
