On Tuesday, the voters of Mississippi a going to vote on Question 26 which is a PERSONHOOD AMENDMENT to the State constitution. It grants ALL THE RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES OF AN INDIVIDUAL to a FERTILIZED EGG. It doesn't just criminalize abortion, it makes certain common birth control meds ILLEGAL, will forbid stem cell research and the culling of eggs in INVITRO FERTILIZATION. So instead of getting twins a woman can be an Octobmom all in one pregnancy or lose all hope of having a baby through invitro. It is the greatest assault on women's rights in this century and it would deny her equality as a human being. It would declare her body a matter of public domain from PUBERTY TO MENSES! It would make her lifestyle a matter of state business and every miscarriage subject to criminal investigation. It would give a whole new meaning to life and has many unforeseen consequences since the law is full of crimes and protections of persons. NO SEX IN MISSISSIPPI. The moral coward that is your governor Haley Barbour has already given his blessing to the travesty to women's rights. A woman's doctor could have to turn her into the police if she seeks medical help in case of miscarriage. There are no exceptions for rape, incest or life of mother in case of need for an abortion. This is an assault on all women in the home and the work place. It must be defeated.
VOTE NO ON QUESTION 26. Oh, in case not to worry, it will go to the Supreme Court. Remember there is no justice for women on this SUPREME CORPORATE COURT OF RATS (Roberts, Alito, Thomas and Scalia). They are all male chauvinist pigs who would think nothing of taking a woman's rights at home and in the work place. VOTE NO ON Question 26.

1. This is such an atrocity words fail me. But I've been wondering...
Will condoms be illegal? Can't imagine the condom manufacturers would like that too much. Will men who use condoms be prosecuted? I'm sure I know the answers, but just thought I'd ask...

Vote no on 26 indeed!

3. Condoms will be the only legal form of birth control.
I believe. Correct me if I'm wrong.

2. The line of reasoning I like suggests that babies conceived in MS by illegals are American Citizens

That could do a lot to set the Republican factions against each other....
