    Thank God? Thank who? that abortionists can still kill unborn kids? The measure was poorly written and was widely criticized nationally by just about every pro-death democrat who could crawl out from under a rock but got pretty good support anyway.

    This means a woman can't be tried for murder because she had a miscarriage.

    This amendment wouldnt have allowed that anyway.

    Is your position that weak that you have to make up bullcrap like this?

    There’s no way to predict how the courts might interpret the proposal.

    In any event this means the people of Mississippi retain their right to privacy.

    But the fact the proposal got as far as it did is troubling; this is still an issue the radical/social right believes it can win on, or at least keep the Old Bush Base energized.

    This is in no way over.

    On what planet could a miscarriage possibly be interpreted as murder? How? it makes no sense whatsoever unless you have some completely different interpretation of what a miscarriage is.
