It's been amazing for me to move from a largely liberal area of Canada to very conservative Mississippi. I have seen posts from Facebook friends of mine trying to build support for this amendment.

Since this state is largely pro life, I can see the quandary democrats are in.

What scares me the most are the unforeseen circumstances that are always affected by laws like this.

Only one Mississippi Democrat is secure enough to oppose the measure.

State Sen. Deborah Dawkins (D-West Harrison County) was the only Democrat willing to publicly oppose the amendment, calling it "completely crazy and unenforceable." She said that while she normally defers to her constituents on issues like this, she can't bring herself to support a measure this extreme.

"My position on anything tends to be what the position of the people who elected me is, but sometimes there are these hot-button issues that people are not well-informed about because they don't know the whole story," she told HuffPost. "I don't think they understand that it would put an end to stem cell research and in vitro, and it is to the Republicans' benefit for them not to understand. But surely some other people besides me realize this is about controlling women, and I don't particularly like to be controlled."

So will the indict God when 50-80% of fertilized eggs continue to miscarry?

That's not a miscarriage, that's a period. All used tampons and pads should be saved, collected, and sent to Personhood USA to bolster their argument.

You poor thing. It's amusing that outsiders still think Democrat=Liberal. Here in AL we call most Democrats "Republicans-in-Waiting".
