Supreme Court rejects OK personhood appeal

The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal by abortion opponents to get a “personhood” amendment on the Oklahoma ballot. Therefore the April ruling of the Oklahoma Supreme Court stands: The proposed amendment is “clearly unconstitutional.” The amendment would have defined a “person” as “any human being from the beginning of the biological development of that human being to natural death.”

This is not a person

  4. I sometimes wonder, if all women were born with the innate ability to detect if they are pregnant and spontaneously abort any fertilized embryos at will, how would Conservatives institute mind control over women to prevent them from doing so?

  5. Shows once again how important this election is. The winner probably will have one or two appointments that will decide the balance of thinking on the Supreme Court.

  6. The images and the caption are perfect: This is not a difficult concept. An acorn is not an oak tree, it is squirrel food.
