I only use gluten-free locally sourced vape. You've probably never heard of it.

Personhood Fails in Mississippi
« on: November 09, 2011, 02:02:22 PM »

Interesting development there.  If I had to list the states where I would expect a personhood amendment to pass, MS would have been on the list.  Looks like the personhood movement is targetting Florida, Ohio and South (or North, don't remember which) Dakota next.

With the right marketing campaign it could happen anywhere.  Just look at CA and prop H8.

IMHO, a person isn't a person until it's a person.
Quote
person - Origin
early 13c., from O.Fr. persone "human being" (12c., Fr. personne), from L. persona "human being," originally "character in a drama, mask," possibly borrowed from Etruscan phersu "mask." This may be related to Gk. Persephone. The use of -person to replace -man in compounds and avoid alleged sexist connotations is first recorded 1971 (in chairperson). Personify first recorded 1727. Personable "pleasing in one's person" is first attested early 15c. In person "by bodily presence" is from 1560s. Person-to-person first recorded 1919, originally of telephone calls.

per·son
   /ˈpɜrsən/ Show Spelled[pur-suhn]
noun
1.
a human being, whether man, woman, or child: The table seats four persons.
2.
a human being as distinguished from an animal or a thing.
3.
Sociology: an individual human being, especially with reference to his or her social relationships and behavioral patterns as conditioned by the culture.
4.
Philosophy: a self-conscious or rational being.
5.
the actual self or individual personality of a human being: You ought not to generalize, but to consider the person you are dealing with.
6.
the body of a living human being, sometimes including the clothes being worn: He had no money on his person.
7.
the body in its external aspect: an attractive person to look at.
8.
a character, part, or role, as in a play or story.
9.
an individual of distinction or importance.
10.
a person not entitled to social recognition or respect.
11.
Law: a human being (natural person) or a group of human beings, a corporation, a partnership, an estate, or other legal entity (artificial person or juristic person) recognized by law as having rights and duties.
12.
Grammar: a category found in many languages that is used to distinguish between the speaker of an utterance and those to or about whom he or she is speaking. In English there are three persons in the pronouns, the first represented by I and we, the second by you, and the third by he, she, it, and they. Most verbs have distinct third person singular forms in the present tense, as writes; the verb be has, in addition, a first person singular form am.
13.
Theology: any of the three hypostases or modes of being in the Trinity, namely the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
14.
be one's own person, to be free from restrictions, control, or dictatorial influence: Now that she's working, she feels that she's her own person.
15.
in person, in one's own bodily presence; personally: Applicants are requested to apply in person.

 An embryo or fetus is none of these; neither in fact nor ideology. What is hard to understand about that? What's next, a million counts of murder for male masturbation? I got Luis beat; hands down. Haha.
 I get so jaded with people's and persons' blatant ignorance of established facts when it runs counter to their agendas; and also the general public's acceptance of said groups tossing facts out of the window.
