MS Amendment 26

if you think it goes too far, why don't you tell us how far is "far enough"?... at what point do you agree that a child has rights?... birth?... then why is the murder of a pregnant woman two homicides?
§ 97-3-37. Homicide; killing of an unborn child; "human being" includes unborn child at every stage of gestation from conception until live birth for purposes of offenses of assault and homicide
§ 97-3-19 (d). When done with deliberate design to effect the death of an unborn child.
§ 11-7-13. Whenever the death of any person or of any unborn quick child shall be caused by any real, wrongful or negligent act or omission...
- Mississippi Code Ann.

you argue against giving another human being the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness... does 26 go too far?


but then again, why haven't YOU gone far enough?... draw your line in the sand... "This far, and no further"... third trimester?... at 37 weeks they are considered "full term", right?... but their lungs aren't developed... so, is it a person or a parasite?

second trimester?... they have organs, swallowing amniotic fluid and processing it out through kidneys... they can hear and react to sound outside the womb... but, it's not a person... it's okay to kill it, right?

first trimester?... they have hearts and a nervous system... its brain is already well developed... but if it doesn't know its name, it isn't a person... right?


so, f@#k-it... i say we change Amendment 26 to deny personhood to children up to their 18th year of life outside the womb... that'll shut up those whiners.

    "By 3 weeks, the 3 primary sections of the brain are identifiable."
    "In the middle of week 3, only 18 days after fertilization, the embryo’s heart appears."
    "By 4 weeks, the heart typically beats between 105 and 121 times per minute."
    "By 5 weeks an optic cup forms from each optic vesicle and pigments begin to form in the emerging retina8 inside each developing eye."
    "The permanent kidneys appear by 5 weeks."
    "Though a pregnant woman does not feel movement for at least another 8 to 10 weeks, the embryo begins to move between 5 and 6 weeks."
    "The diaphragm, the primary muscle used in breathing, is largely formed by 6 weeks."
    "Individualized brainwaves recorded via electroencephalogram, or EEG, have been reported as early as 6 weeks, 2 days."
    "Also, by 7 weeks, the embryo moves the legs and exhibits a startle response."
    "The earliest sign of right- or left-handedness begins around eight weeks, with 75 percent of embryos already exhibiting right arm dominance."
    "8 weeks marks the end of the embryonic period. During this time, the human embryo has grown from a single cell into nearly 1 billion cells forming over 4000 distinct anatomic structures. The embryo now possesses more than 90 percent of the structures found in the adult."
