Mississippi Personhood Amendment

I found this at [personal profile] eerian_sadow's Livejournal today.

Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.






I am German. My grandparents actually lived through the Nazi time. My grandfather served on a submarine in the Second World War. Germany as a state tends to be very against most fundamentalist things because of what Hitler made possible during his reign. We also tend to look at America for many things to 'do right', because we did so many things wrong in the past.

This thing they want to do in Mississippi scares the blood out of me. It screams Nazi to me. It gives me nightmares of breeding camps and people put to prison because they 'dared' to not want to procreate. The amount of observation they would need to actually enforce this bill would make what the Stasi did in East Germany before the wall fell look like child's play.

Hell, the Handmaid's Tale looks like a cheery fantasy if the law gets through.

Notes: A large part of the story happens before the first movie. Also, this story is a sort of prequel/sequel to Phoenix Rising, so it could be considered AU.
