From the Secretary of State’s Office:
Be it Enacted by the People of the State of Mississippi:
SECTION 1. Article III of the constitution of the state of Mississippi is hereby amended BY THE ADDITION OF A NEW SECTION TO READ:
SECTION 33. Person defined. As used in this Article III of the state constitution, “The term ‘person’ or ‘persons’ shall include every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning or the functional equivalent thereof.
Yes, that’s the whole thing. That’s the entire text of the amendment to the Mississippi Constitution that you’re being asked to approve.
Maybe you’re wondering, where is the protection for IVF? How about birth control pills and IUDs, or ectopic pregnancy treatment?
Well, we’re wondering too. That’s why we’re here.
