This is bad law indeed. These Christian Republicans want small government, yet when it comes to abortion and gay marriage, they want MORE laws, which translates to less freedom. MS is a beautiful state with nice people, but honestly, they need to stop putting religion in the way of social freedoms.

Personally, I believe each and every zygote is a person, deserves a social security number and should be claimed as a dependent on tax returns.

According to Public Policy Polling, 45% of Mississippians support this amendment while 44% oppose it. The younger generation aged 18-29 and those aged 66 and older have the highest support level. 44% of those aged 18-29 support this, as do 53% of those 66 and older. 40% of those 18-29 oppose this as do 37% of adults 66 and older. Toss-up on Mississippi

Excellent idea... for a few thousand in IVF expenses you can get a whole brood of frozen humans. Pay about $500/year in storage expenses and get several thousand in tax deductions. Brilliant!

Anyway, talk is cheap, and today is election day. The online poll here doesn't carry any weight in the real world, so get out there and vote!

No, this is another patent example of people trying to control others and impose their subjective morals on everyone else. Mississippi doesn't need this backwards thinking. There's already enough down there.

Here is another hand in hand issue to go with this ammendment---The seemingly right wing,pro life,politically conservative people who are pushing this nonsense are the very same people who moan,groan,b*tch and whine about thier tax $$ going to support Section 8 housing,food stamps, indegent healthcare and other social welfare programs. Yet they want to force women who clearly cant afford more children to bring them into the world. Bring them into a world of poverty,illness and little hope. So I guess the "right to life" ends at birth???

Oh, and people who can afford it will just go to surrounding states where abortions will still be legal.

The amendment was defeated by quite a wide margin. I was surprised when I saw the results this morning.

I didn't think 58% was that great. It will be interesting to see if the powers that be try it again in a future election. Maybe with different wording.

cut abortions? 40% of abortions are AA. in mississippi this means the poorest people, a large sector, will have many many more children. how does mississippi feel about that? but bottom line, 144,000 kids every year nationwide are being murdered and i did say murdered, more than 1/2 way thru the pregnancy. its gota stop. mississippi always had and always will have lots of guts.
thank u mississippi.
