(Jackson) - A constitutional referendum in Mississippi to declare all unborn children persons, which has the potential to permanently impact the national abortion debate, is on its way to become the first successful referendum of its kind in America, according to pro-life leaders.
Proposition 26, which will appear on this year’s November 8 ballot, would declare as persons “every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning or the equivalent thereof.” Although similar measures have failed in other states such as Colorado, leaders supporting the Mississippi measure say that the climate in their state is far more favorable towards personhood.
