Dispatches from the War on Sex: Mississippi's 'personhood' initiative

Voters in Mississippi will decide tomorrow on a 'personhood' initiative which, if passed, would confer legal personhood upon a fertilized ovum. This would of course render abortion illegal, and any other act that interfered with said ovum's development -- like, say, a miscarriage, or the use of certain kinds of birth control -- could be considered negligent homicide or even murder.
