JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi voters shot down a referendum Tuesday that would have effectively banned abortions in the state, rejecting an initiative that said life begins at conception.
The so-called personhood initiative was rejected by more than 55 percent of voters. If it had passed, it was virtually assured of drawing legal challenges because it conflicts with the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that established a legal right to abortion.

Truth. I remember reading that liberals were calling it “racist” when prolifers try to prevent black babies from being aborted. :?
What a crappy thing to say. That type of stuff is what gives the other side ammo to pin all of us like you.
It will probably be back in modified form in 2012.
The post was disgusting and I stand by my reaction. Actions or Feelings do not play into it. That’s all.
Hey if you’re white it wouldn’t touch your family... much.
Your reaction was a choice or a passion.
Make up your mind. Do not try to stand by one, only waffling to the other when it is convenient.
Its pretty disgusting when being against killing babies is seen as extreme.
It was a disgusting aggression of thought against an entire state that I found repugnant. Call it what you want.
There was no text remotely discussing this or even abortion, though the intent was clearly not to make any exceptions for the life of the mother or incest.
It was simply:
BALLOT SUMMARY: Initiative #26 would amend the Mississippi Constitution to define the word person or persons, as those terms are used in Article III of the state constitution, to include every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning, or the functional equivalent thereof.
Which is the functional equivalent of no abortions, no exceptions, and as people realized, would probably be used to try to ban birth control pills as well. And as I've pointed out, very quickly morphs into child welfare social workers, homicide detectives, and coroners poking around people's uteruses and vaginal effusions on demand.
Favor is being shown to those who kill the unborn. One can criticize pickily that the measure failed to deal rationally with situations such as tubal pregnancies, but that is easily enough amended. If that favor is not the action of “love” then pray tell me what is it? If MS does not love dead black babies then it loves the killers of black babies.
Clearly they expected Roe v. Wade to cut a huge swath through it — they were only hoping for what bits would be left.
Too bad...people have been corrupted by abortion on demand for many years. It will take Jesus to undo this.
OK, so MS tolerates dead black babies and loves their killers.
It's just not as simple as the statement about conception. I don't think the Miss initiative addressed these issues.
This is what happens when someone carefully sits down and thinks about a vast extension of government power like the initiative, instead of blindly supporting it without really even understanding what it states or what it means, in an effort to feel morally superior.
It sounds like the anti-Obama feelings from the 2009 and 2010 elections are gone even in conservative states.
Whatever it was, it wasn’t “convoluted.” It was as doggone simple as you can get! If the results are complicated, well think of what happened when black men were emancipated. A great evil being undone results in a great confusion in the established order.
Anyhow, yes to sell this has to deal rationally with triage situations. But doesn’t MS already have a body of triage law?
Let's say your neighbors are married and 30, and have been married for 10 years. And don't have any children. Suspicious, no>
Isn't it your responsibility to report them to Child Protective Services on the suspicion that they've been been using birth control pills (which, as we're continually told by the fanatics, are an "abortifacient").
These people may have been guilty of killing HUNDREDS of "persons." Which clearly justifies a warrant and the police coming in and ransacking the house looking for birth control pills.
Don’t agree with your assessment of Mississippi as some sort of bellwether state. Just about everyone whom I have had any dealings with from that state has been either devious, or downright criminal. Sorry.
