Mississippi voting on 'personhood' amendment

(CNN) - Mississippi voters are casting ballots Tuesday on an amendment to the state constitution that would define life as beginning at the moment of conception.

Initiative 26 would define personhood as "every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning or the functional equivalent thereof."

    The republican craziness continues. Now they tell us that in addition to corporations, eggs are people too.

    Mississippi will be the first state to have an 'egg abuse' hotline.

    If the republicans continue the insanity, we will have to change mottos as we are rapidly becoming a nation of corporations, eggs and wealthy people. Our government will have to reflect the republican dream: A government of the eggs, corporations and wealthy people; by the eggs, corporations and wealthy people; and for the eggs, corporations, and wealthy people is a catchy message.

    Funny how they care for eggs but once the egg develops and needs medical help, they will scream let them die..

    When the human sperm fertilizes the human egg, what is it other than a human being? To suggest otherwise is ignorant. Now once you have a human being and terminate it's life, what is it other than murder? Is murder legal? Some states say it is when they kill people for crimes they have committed against society. Roe vs Wade says it is legal to kill babies also. What a screwed up country we have. If I had to chose, I would chose the the execution of people that had a choice and committed crimes aginst society. Babies have done nothing wrong.

    Read Psalms 139: 13-16 to see what God says concerning this matter. God saw you and I even when we were in our Mothers' wombs and recorded our physical features in a Book! Of course Liberal Democrats are far too intelligent and superior to believe that a Supernatural God could do such things......just keep believing the way you believe and one day you will stand before a Thrice Holy God and give an account for all these things! May God have mercy on you and all your Liberal friends on that day!
    Most Liberals think Mississippi is ignorant....ummmmmmm ....at least they are no fools...."the fool has said in his heart, there is no God" Psalms 14:1

  9. The Greedy Old Pigs have lost their minds!

    The GOBP deathcult, where a fetus is more important than 99% of the country. Though if the 1%ers ever figure out a way to make money off of abortion, all bets are off!

    There you go again Wire Palladin......why don't you tell everyone on this blog why you are so much more intelligent and superiro to a Thrice Holy God? And why you are a Liberal Democrat and why you have so much free time on your hands...ummmmmmm....have you and Sniffit cashed you Welfare checks yet? Got any extra food stamps? When was the last time you WORKED? Can't recall? After all, not everyone can be a Community Organizer or work for Acorn! Mississipians aren't so dumb after all! San Francisco is after all, the most Godless city in the nation.....or should we call it Sodom and Gomarha?
