We, the vast majority of the voters of Mississippi who resoundingly voted no on Initiative 26 (the so called Personhood Initiative) in Nov. 2011 demand an end to any renewed Personhood push. The nearly 60% of Mississippians who voted no on this misguided and dangerous proposal were not confused or mislead. We voted no with robust, precise, and accurate knowledge of what our vote meant. Do not waste our state's time, energy, and already limited resources with another foolhardy Personhood proposal.
Personhood would only exacerbate the many serious issues of poverty, access to affordable health care, and education funding in our state. Mississippians already said no to Personhood and we meant it.
