As everyone probably knows by now, the measure was defeated Tuesday -- one of the setbacks for the Right that's been sidelined by a GOP candidate's confusion over exactly what kind of damage he plans to do as POTUS.



Mississippi anti-abortion ‘personhood’ amendment fails at ballot box

"A constitutional amendment that would have defined a fertilized egg as a person failed on the ballot in Mississippi on Tuesday, dealing the so-called 'personhood' movement another blow.

"Mississippi would have become the first state to define a fertilized egg as a person, a measure which was aimed at outlawing abortion in the state but, opponents contended, would have led to all kinds of unintended consequences.

"In the end, those concerns won out in a strongly anti-abortion state. The amendment trailed 59 percent to 41 percent with more than half of precincts reporting. "

The article included a warning that the Religious Right isn't about to give up, and they'll probably be trying this in other states next year.

          Thats one for the good guys.  Thank goodness.  I was completely surprised.

           Iowa knocked down the union busting legislation also.  A good day.
