Burglar-bars make for slate grill.  Neighborhood smells like forest fire.

When it comes to education, poverty, and human rights – Alabamians have long thanked Mississippi for holding a firm grip on last place.  An upcoming ballot measure in the state, initiative 26, if passed, would be the most draconian attack on women’s reproductive rights spawned sense the 2010 Tea Party Republican election sweep.

Not only are voters being asked to define embryos as people, this amendment will also outlaw the most common types of birth control and in vitro fertilization and will open the door for criminal investigation of miscarriages. Mississippi, already home to some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country, will now make it nearly impossible for women and their doctors to make informed and sound decisions.

Initiative 26, if passed, will be one of the most damaging intrusions into women’s reproductive health we’ve seen, even in a year marked by restrictive anti-choice bills. It will make it possible for mothers and doctors to be charged with murder if they have an abortion – even in the case of rape or incest. A number of forms of birth control could be considered murder.
