Chicago, Ill., Nov 13, 2011 / 06:23 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Representatives of the Thomas More Society and the Pro-Life Action League say the defeat of Mississippi’s “personhood” initiative does not mark a serious defeat for the pro-life movement.

“Does this ‘personhood’ language have any effect in and of itself on state law? Or does this require the legislature to enact specific pieces of legislation to give it effect?” he asked.

Wouldn’t it be useful to have some common agreement about when life does begin?
Even if it was age 21 or 18, it’d be nice to know when life begins so we’d know when we CAN kill people.
Conception, birth, a day, a week, a year, a decade?
When CAN you kill some one?
Maybe it’s when they can do something? Crawl, walk, run, control their bowels.
Or is it when that person can assert their own rights?
It’ll be an interesting discussion!
