Liberty Counsel: Personhood amendment on Miss. ballot in 2011

by D. Bennett

The Liberty Counsel reports that after a furious effort to gather enough signatures, a personhood amendment to the Mississippi state constitution will be placed on the November 2011 ballot.

The amendment reads, “The term ‘person’ or ‘persons’ shall include every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning or the functional equivalent thereof.”

The Liberty Counsel praised the efforts of those gathering signatures, as well as pledging to defend the amendment.

“We stand ready to defend this amendment against all those who would seek to undermine the fundamental right to life for the most innocent among us,” the Counsel writes. “We are preparing for legal challenges against the amendment.”
