Mississippi wants to take granting legal rights to fertilized eggs back to the voters, even though the voters already resoundingly said no.

The development of a potential human life requires conception as a first step. But that is not the same as either pregnancy or personhood. You can’t reduce complex reality to a slogan, and when you try to do so, you actually minimize the personhood of women.
The high court turned back the anti-abortion group’s plea to put the issue of personhood on the Oklahoma ballot without comment.
