This is not a person (but soon it might be called one in Mississippi)

Last reminder: Today Mississippi is voting on an amendment that would take legal rights away from women and give them to fertilized eggs. Yesterday a survey found voters perfectly split–with 45% supporting the amendment and 44% opposed. That means over 10% of voters still need to hear just how extreme this initiative is–and be convinced to get to the polls.

So if you’re in Mississippi, help get out the vote. And everyone should spread the word. Tell folks to vote NO on the Personhood amendment (Initiative 26) and on the Voter ID measure (Initiative 27). Just say no, y’all.
