American Life League gears up for a new round of amendments at their Personhood Now training conference. But will calling fertilized eggs “little children” help them chip away at abortion rights?
Amidst a serious fiscal crisis and record unemployment, Republican lawmakers in Michigan had not much better to do than to propose a law to recognize fertilized eggs as people. Thanks to our colleague Todd Heywood of Michigan Independent for the document.
The North Dakota Senate overwhelmingly denies Personhood USA another chance at ruining women’s lives, health and status by defeating the “personhood bill.”
North Dakota House approves egg-as-person legislation; USA Today examines likely effects of provider conscience expansion; Pelosi to meet with Pope; fight on the right over what reduces abortion.
Inspired by Kristi Burton, a Colorado man is proposing a ballot measure to repeal the state’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

Colorado’s Amendment 48 backers are trying a new tactic in the face of crushing defeat: attack low-income women’s access to cancer screenings!
Need yet more proof that the ballot initiatives in Colorado, South Dakota and California this election season are anti-women’s health? Watch the real life stories of these three women unfold on video.
