The group Personhood USA has succeeded in adding a terrifying initiative to the November ballot in Mississippi. Very soon, the residents of Mississippi will be voting on a measure that defines a fertilized egg as a human being. A fertilized egg, not an embryo. Not a fetus.
In many cases, a fertilized egg fails on its own to adhere to the uterine wall. But it would suddenly be a crime, committed by a woman with absolutely no control over her endometrial membranes.
This would mean that birth control pills could be considered a lethal weapon.
That miscarriage could carry a charge of murder.
That a woman could actually be imprisoned for failing to produce a child.
Whether or not you believe that abortion is murder, you cannot dispute that miscarriage is not. That a chemical pregnancy (where a fertilized egg does not implant in the uterine wall) is not a crime.
Personhood USA is attempting to get this measure on the ballot in all fifty states. Send a message now, to and for the people of Mississippi.
Support the cause. Make a donation if you can. Protect the biological freedom of women everywhere.
