Until a change of course is demanded in the state of Kansas, our elected oppressors will no doubt continue to spend their time, energy, resources and taxpayer money in the never-ending pursuit of being the first state to eliminate abortion and even some forms of contraception through the eradication of access, while saddling the taxpayers with an ideological debt.
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.
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?

Unlikely allies from both sides of the traditional “abortion” debate have come together in opposition to Prop 26, Mississippi’s egg-as-person initiative.
DeWine calls the petition summary “not fair and truthful.”
When your choices are anti-choice or more-anti-choice, it gets harder to pick a leader for your state.
Of all of the states in the country, California seems like the last place such an effort would work.
