Watchwoman on the Wall

November 8, 2011 Election Results for Pro-Life Measure in Mississippi

Mississippi voters rejected an amendment to the state constitution that defined life as beginning at the moment of conception.

The measure would have made it impossible to get an abortion in the state and hampered the ability to get the morning-after pill or birth control pills that destroy fertilized eggs.

Disposing of unused fertilized eggs could also have become illegal, making in vitro fertilization treatments more difficult. The measure could have led to a nationwide debate about women’s rights and abortion while setting up a possible challenge to the landmark Roe v. Wade case, which makes abortion legal.

Also, CNN projects that Mississippi voters will approve a measure to amend the state constitution to require a person to submit government-issued photo ID in order to vote.
