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

      1. Hahaha, I know. I get it, but it is difficult! That’s the thing. For some of us, it is. I would never want to dictate to another woman what she does with her body, but I can’t help but wonder about that zygote. (I am a lactose-intolerant vegetarian who can’t stand the thought of eating unfertilized eggs because I know what they *can* become.) Weird, I know. But there it is.

  1. 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?
