Some unexpected good news from Mississippi:
A constitutional amendment that would have defined a fertilized egg as a person failed on the ballot in Mississippi on Tuesday, dealing the so-called “personhood” movement another blow. . . The amendment trailed 59 percent to 41 percent with more than half of precincts reporting. The Associated Press has said it will fail.
If even a completely backward place like Mississippi managed to wake up to the utter ridiculousness of calling eggs people, then there is hope for humanity yet.
Fanaticism and the hatred of women are in their death throes. This is why anti-choicers are pushing this desperate, egregiously stupid, hopeless legislation. They realize that this is their very last chance to be taken seriously by the most puritanical, terrified, miserable and angry people in this country. The future generations will think this “personhood movement” was simply one big joke.
