And the third attempt to pass an “egg as person” amendment in Colorado is underway.
The AG calls the language too “ambiguous.”
A Nevada judge has ruled to immediately dismiss the second of two “egg-as-person” ballot initiatives because he has determined it to be vague and misleading.
Personhood Arkansas has taken the first step in trying to get a constitutional amendment to define a fertilized egg as a person onto the 2012 ballot.
A Nevada state judge today rewrote a misleading ballot initiative to make clear it is designed to eliminate access to all abortions, no matter how grave the situation of the mother, and to ban common birth control methods, the treatment of ectopic pregnancy, in vitro fertilization treatment, and stem cell research.
More states make headway on pushing fertilized eggs as people bills.
In Colorado, some of the highest-ranking GOP politicians in the state are personhood backers, even though the measure was shot down badly both here in 2008 and again in 2010. Will the same politicians who backed the personhood amendment last year jump on board again, now that personhood backers have announced plans to place the measure on the 2012 election ballot in Colorado?
Another election year, another attempt to pass “Personhood” in Colorado.
As Mississippi debated then defeated a “personhood” amendment that would have granted legal rights to fertilized human eggs, multiple media outlets reported that GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney refused to clarify whether he supported the measure, which would ban not only abortions but also common forms of birth control and undermine other forms of health care for women.
You know how the GOP and Tea Parties hate regulations? Think again: The Regulatory Accountability Act would enforce purposeful overregulation. This law would so hamstring the regulation process that things like coverage of birth control in health reform could be tied up for years. Moreover, it would give groups like the United States Council of Catholic Bishops even more power.
