Mississippi is going to vote on legislation that defines a person as beginning at conception. This would make abortion murder.
But, would it also make mothers who may have smoked, drank, ate McDonalds fries, did a cartwheel, had a Heimlich maneuver, took some medication, or any other number of things that may impact a developing fetus, manslaughterers?
What does it mean to define a couple of freshly joined cells in a little tube inside a woman's body, as a person?
