Five reasons Mississippi’s personhood initiative lost (aside from the other side’s whopping lies)

As the dust settles after the defeat of Mississippi’s personhood initiative  last week, here are five reasons I think it lost. These  have nothing to do with the whopping lies the other side told. In other words, these are constructive criticisms. I ran my thoughts past Keith Mason of Personhood USA, who took them well. […]

A person’s still not a person no matter how small in Mississippi

Three weeks ago Mississippi’s Initiative 26, or the “personhood amendment,” enjoyed 80+% support. Last week internal pro-life polling showed it was still up by 18 points. Yet Initiative 26 ended up losing last night 58-42%. There were two simple reasons for the loss:

Mississippi Personhood Amendment fails

So let’s keep this “personhood” stuff to a minimum, OK? It’s been repeatedly shut down because cuckoo-bananas politics simply doesn’t work. Get over it! And to the freedom fighters out there, remember that Mississippi is far from being out of the woods (remember their one little abortion clinic in the entire state?!). Keep up the […]

Mississippi personhood vote on razor’s edge

A new poll underscores just how close Mississippi is to passing the country’s first “personhood” law, which would define life as beginning at conception. Public Policy Polling finds that, hours before tomorrow’s vote, 45 percent of voters supported the amendment, while 44 percent opposed it. “Things can definitely go either way tomorrow,” said Public Policy […]

Mississippi governor demands abortion front group stop deceptive robo-calls about personhood initiative

They deceived from the moment of their conception, pardon the pun, by stating they were Mississippians for Healthy Families. In actuality two of the group’s three organizing officers were CEOs of Planned Parenthoods in other states, and the third was the executive director of ACLU of Mississippi, certainly not family-oriented. Since then the lies they’ve […]

Personhood: Do abortion proponents only have themselves to blame?

… [T]he campaign to define personhood is a strategy of desperation.  America’s cultural and political elite has spent years promoting abortion by means foul and fair.  Abortion advocates value sexual freedom more than the life which may result from sexual freedom.  For many of them, life is cheap and disposable, with an “unwanted” baby but […]

Why they’re really, really scared about the Mississippi Personhood Amendment

A potentially game-changing date for the pro-life and pro-abortion movements is quickly upon us, only 10 days away. (Make sure to read the money line at the end of this post.) On November 8 Mississippi voters will decide the fate of Initiative 26, aka the Personhood Amendment, which states: The term “person” or “persons” shall […]

Breaking: Live Action to release new undercover investigation exposing opponents of Mississippi Personhood Amendment

Developing, a press statement just released by Lila Rose and Live Action: JACKSON – Live Action, the pro-life group responsible for recent undercover stings showing Planned Parenthood’s institutional tolerance for child sexual abuse, will release a new investigation on Monday showing how opponents of recognizing the right to life of unborn children in Mississippi, backed by […]

Sooo, Rachel Maddow, you’re admitting The Pill kills newly conceived humans?

Liberal MSNBC commentator Rachel Maddow attempted to combine the topics of gay marriage and the personhood movement on her September 29 show, only for her talking points to collapse into a blob of inconsistencies. Rationalizing why citizens in over two dozen states have voted to ban gay marriage, which Maddow, a lesbian, supports, she said, […]

What’s wrong with this picture? Pro-life groups join pro-abortion groups to oppose the Ohio Heartbeat Bill

For the first time I can think of, pro-lifers are divided into three camps on a pro-life bill. Usually it’s just two, which is bad enough. I wrote on September 14 that both Ohio Right to Life and the Personhood people were actively opposing the Ohio Heartbeat Bill, which would ban abortion in Ohio from […]

TakeCareDownThereA persistent stigma surrounding abortion ensures that the people who provide these services continue to be construed as morally corrupt.

Just like the original version of HB 305 would have banned abortion clinic employees from providing any type of services in public schools, some states have taken this idea to an extreme. Last year, Kansas attempted to ban abortion providers from schools altogether in a sweeping provision that could have prevented parents who work at Planned Parenthood from volunteering to chaperone their kids’ field trips.

That measure didn’t pass, but the attitude remains — people who support abortion shouldn’t be allowed around kids. Other types of professions aren’t singled out in this way in proposed laws.

[Note: The author describes HB 305, "spearheaded by Rep. Frank Hoffmann (R)", as "intend[ing] to prohibit abortion providers from disseminating materials in publicly funded schools. The original version of the bill would have prevented employees at groups like Planned Parenthood from providing any type of instruction to students whatsoever — but Hoffman ended up amending the legislation to narrow the scope, banning abortion providers from instructing students about topics related to ‘human sexuality or family planning.’” For an example of some of Planned Parenthood’s finest student info on sexuality, see this info on Take Care Down There.]
