        On Nov. 1, 2011, the University of Mississippi School of Law hosted a panel of legal and medical experts to explain the possible ramifications of Proposition 26, a constitutional amendment that would grant the rights of a person to the all fertilized eggs, embryos and fetuses. The panel included law professor Michele Alexandre, who teaches feminist legal theory and civil rights law; obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. Wayne Slocum also head of the Mississippi section of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists; Cristen Hemmins, parent and plaintiff for the case to keep 26 off the ballot, and Feder-Hosey, a third year law student.

        • Mississippi's Assault on Women


          from Zina Saunders / Added

          On Nov. 8th, Mississippi will be voting on Amendment 26, which would redefine a fertilized egg as a full-fledged person with legal rights, which, by extension, makes women walking incubators. If this passes, it will mean that anything that is done to impinge on a fertilized egg’s rights (which could include a miscarriage, IVF, and various forms of birth control) could land a lady in the hoosegow.

          • A Personhood Amendment is Wrong for Wisconsin

            Should Wisconsin amend its Constitution to grant personhood to unborn children? Would a personhood constitutional amendment provide permanent protection for Wisconsin's unborn children? No. We are all weary of the long struggle to end abortion and want a solution to protect unborn children from being destroyed. However, there are very important reasons why a personhood amendment strategy is not necessary, risky -- and just plain wrong for Wisconsin. There are at least four good reasons why a personhood amendment is wrong for Wisconsin. Read more here: http://wrtl.org/pa/index.html

            • The Paul Ryan Vision: Ban Abortion, Defund Contraception, Outlaw In Vitro Fertilization

              DemocracyNow.org - We look at Mitt Romney's newly announced vice presidential running mate Paul Ryan’s record on women’s reproductive rights. Ryan opposes abortion in all situations, including cases of rape and incest, and opposes abortion in cases that endanger an expectant mother's health. Planned Parenthood has also criticized his endorsement of a so-called "Personhood Amendment," which supports defining a fertilized egg as a human being. Ryan was a co-sponsor of the Sanctity of Human Life Act, which even the conservative state of Mississippi rejected last November, and is favor of de-funding Planned Parenthood. Ryan wants to dismantle Medicaid and repeal Obama's Affordable Care Act. “For Congressman Ryan to think he's the one that should be making the decision to take healthcare options away from women, that's very troubling to us,” says our guest Nicole Safar, Public Policy Director for Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin.
