With several abortion restrictions on hold, anti-choice activists are using their down time to prepare for a new push to grant legal rights to fertilized eggs via a “personhood” measure.
Never has an anti-choice politician been so blatant that his motives are purely about his religion.
Last year’s attempt to pass a “personhood” bill through the Oklahoma legislature was a disaster. Now, it’s a second try.
Well, at least he’s getting nice and specific.
If the fertilized egg as person movement wasn’t already showing signs of jumping the shark, now they are bribing people into supporting them.
The high court turned back the anti-abortion group’s plea to put the issue of personhood on the Oklahoma ballot without comment.
“Unknown reasons?” “Thwarted” attempts? Maybe the Secretary of State really did kill off personhood himself?
Regardless of whether the advocacy group can recover enough discarded signatures to meet the threshold, the state had decided it is too late to proceed.
Personhood Colorado may not believe the voters don’t want to give legal rights to fertilized eggs, but the politicians do.
Colorado’s third attempt to force voters to reject personhood is on its way.
