Mississippi Personhood Amendment


While I'm not surprised that the media exaggerated this amendment, I do still have some questions.

What the bill says.

I have to ask the good people of Mississippi: do you have a plan to care for those children? Do you truly support ALL life? Got a universal health plan there to cover for it (I can only hope the U.S. would join the rest of the civilized world soon when it comes to health care)?

And because ALL life is important--what about those women for whom their pregnancy could kill them? While medical technology has vastly improved, I do know of at least one woman who would have died if an abortion was refused her: she miscarried one twin at 19 weeks and would have bled to death if the doctor hadn't removed the other fetus.

I'm struggling with this one. I do support the outlawing of abortion but I fear that not making exceptions when a woman's life is in danger will only vilify the pro-life movement.
