    Ohio Personhood Ballot Initiative Falls Short Of Signature Goal

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — An anti-abortion group fell short Tuesday in its attempt to gather enough signatures to ask voters this fall to change the state constitution to declare that life begins when a human egg is fertilized.
    Backers of the proposed constitutional amendment in Ohio, a key state in the upcoming presidential election, and elsewhere hope to spark a legal challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which upheld a woman's right to an abortion until the fetus is viable outside the womb, usually at 22 to 24 weeks.

    The group had collected only about 30,000 of the roughly 385,000 signatures required to be submitted to state officials on Wednesday for a chance to appear on November ballots, said Patrick Johnston, the director of Personhood Ohio.

    What a waste of taxpayer money Republicans are, even Mississippians rejected the idiotic so-called, "Personhood" BS.


    Republican obsession with "personhood" is a schizophrenic mental illness, there's no other explanation for Republican bizarro behavior.



    Voters have rejected similar proposals that made ballots in 2008 and 2010 in Colorado. They also defeated the initiative last November in Mississippi, which has some of the nation's toughest abortion regulations.

    Republicans have no solutions to the problems this Nation faces; indeed, many of their failed policies are likely the cause. As a result this is the only nonsense they have to campaign on.

    You two were once personhoods back when you were itty-bitty zygotes.
    Now you're both a couple of 'tards.
    Maybe you got something here after all.
