Personhood Amendment 26  
Granted I know sooo many of you will disagree with this Amendment but I have read recently how this Amendment will make birth control illegal and miscarriages a prosecutable offense. I just wanted to state that you shouldn't believe everything Mississippi for Healthy Families is telling you. If you want to know the truth go to the sites that are pro. Read the Amendment. It isn't about stopping people from using birth control or having miscarriages.

This Amendment is trying to state that once a child is conceived by any means, it is a person. I believe this to be true. You don't have to agree with me but don't spread the scare tactic lies.

NO ONE in their right mind would try to prosecute a woman who has suffered a miscarriage. They suffer so much and I feel like this scare tactic is heartless in it's nature. Get you facts right.

Women Being Prosecuted After Miscarriages
This article was brought to my attention by a gal who is against this Amendment: Outcry in America as pregnant women who lose babies face murder charges.

Case #1: If you read the article this girl is being prosecuted because her substance abuse is likely the cause of her child's death. I'm am on the fence about this but at the same time it disgusts me when women drink, do drugs, or smoke while pregnant. I do think they are committing a crime. One my own sister is guilty of. These people who are against this worry about the cost of not killing babies but someone like my niece who was a drug baby has incurred tons of medical bills because her mother harmed her before she was even born.

Still, should the girl be prosecuted? Not sure about that but honestly if they can prove her baby died because of the drugs then technically she killed her child. Just because an addiction is a "sickness" doesn't mean you aren't responsible for your actions.

Case # 2: What about the woman who tried to commit suicide? She took rate poison. I believe she killed her child and should be held accountable. If you try to commit suicide and kill another person in the process, you will be charged, but because this child has yet to be born (another words, not given the chance to learn, grow and love) it isn't the same? How is that logical? We were all once those unborn babies. I was a person from the time I was conceived and until the day I die and I believe that about everyone.

Case #3: What about the woman who did nothing and is being charged? First, we don't know all facts in the case, but I'm going to assume what we read it the entirety of the situation. That DA should be ashamed. If this article is true that nothing that woman did is criminal. So she is the person to be behind. Having said taht I found this artivles online about this woman.

Enough meth for an adult woman would seriously harm or even kill a small baby. And if the article is believed she did supply a baby with that dosage.

It is funny that they use this as an example in the first article but don't state that she admitted that. And if they are lying then that is very sad but what if they aren't?

I tend to believe that looking at every miscarriage for a crime is rather disgusting, but in the cases of drug users and suicides I understand it. Besides a miscarriage is a natural reaction of the body when the baby isn't viable. Taking a substance that harms the baby is not the definition of a miscarriage.

Birth Control
What the public at large calls birth control is in jeopardy. But that would be the "birth control" pills that destroy the baby that was conceived. If you are taking something to prevent conception those are not even close to being at risk.

I know many of you won't like that but there is a difference. This amendment is opposing abortion in all forms not conception.

I don't know a lot about this subject but this is an article that was shared with me.

Well like anything like this one side or the other likes scare tactics. In this case, the more liberal want us to believe a woman who has a miscarriage will be tried for murder when in reality the only woman being investigated are those who ingested drugs or poison which resulted in the unborn babies death. In my opinion, not the definition of miscarriage.

I think most woman do know better now-a-days. Especially with all the tv. You see it constantly on television, woman saying they can't smoke or drink or take things because of the baby. It is only logical to assume that means meth and cocaine as well.

I'm really glad Brittney is being dealt with and that we've managed to make her understand just how horrible being a teen and a mother would be. But then she knows what it did to her mother.

I feel like people taking the less aggressive route is why we have the issues we have today. I mean I'm not saying you abandon your daughter because she gets pregnant and a young age but what is wrong with really trying to instill waiting for that person she is truly in love with or at least until she's an adult because I really don't think teens can deal with sex. Hell, sometimes I don't think I'm mature enough and I'm 32.

And you know, I wouldn't say you're horrible. And while I do believe in waiting until marriage I don't even mean that. Just because you start dating in your teens doesn't mean that you're first boyfriend should get to have sex with you. I'm thinking more like really thinking about the person and the situation before leaping in. Life would be easier on us if we slept with those we loved rather than anyone... I mean that itself is so risky.

Of course, with the waiting until after marriage, I would say just because they aren't great the first time around doesn't mean you two can't learn and grow together. I feel like if you're married to a person you should be able to say, hey let's try this or that. I mean I feel like there is more to marriage anyway. I mean I'd rather be married to the sweet funny guy who is always there for you and supports you through anything but isn't the greatest in bed than the guy that doesn't do anything to help and mooches off of you but is great in bed.

Just some thoughts.
