Following a court decision to allow it, this fall voters in Mississippi will get to decide on whether to approve or disapprove an amendment to their state constitution that will define a person as "... every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning, or the functional equivalent thereof." A "Personhood" amendment as it is most commonly called, has been tried in a few other states in the past.
Here's the official website for the organization which supports the amendment in Mississippi. The question I have for our readers is - what do you think of this approach? What do you think the outcome of this amendment will be in Mississippi? Opponents say that this will ban birth control; supporters say that this will only prohibit abortions and protect unborn lives.
