Thanks to a state supreme court ruling Thursday, Mississippi is now set to vote on a Personhood Amendment this fall. The measure would not only make abortion illegal, but would also outlaw popular forms of birth control.
Mississippi voters tend to like this kind of thing. Below, from the conservative site Majority in Mississippi, a map of the Defense of Marriage Amendment vote in Mississippi in 2004. Majority in Mississippi says it got 86 percent of the vote, failing to pull three-quarters in just one county. “Getting 86 percent of people to agree on anything is difficult, but I believe we will see broad support in every county throughout the state for the initiative,” the site writes.
