Personhood people must have amnesia

Not withstanding his performance at the Republican convention last year, Clint Eastwood has delivered some of the great lines in movie history.

Personhood sponsors pushing for another Mississippi ballot initiative that would define life as beginning at conception might want to take a look back at one of Eastwood’s classic films “Magnum Force.”

In it, he delivers the great line, “A good man always knows his limitations.”

Apparently, the Personhood movement — collectively — has a short memory, considering its last try at this less than two years ago was hammered by 58 percent of the vote in Mississippi, which is still one of the most conservative states in America.

Sponsors who filed paperwork for a new initiative have said they believe people were misled about the measure that was defeated in November 2011.


It was pretty straight forward.

The fact of the matter is the women across the board were offended by the legislation.

Give it a rest.

You lost.

Move on to something else.

But, I suppose, everyone has to make a living, and the only way these folks can use the money that is donated to them is by wasting it on legislation that wastes the time of everyone they come in contact with.

  1. If the pro-aborts would stop lying about Personhood, the people would have a good shot at making an informed vote.
