This bill would potentially ban nearly all forms of hormonal birth control, as they partly work by preventing implantation in the rare instances that the hormones don't prevent conception. Since there's no way to know the mechanism in each individual case, they would no longer be appropriate (or likely even legal) to use. Beyond that, will each miscarriage be investigated? Will pregnant individuals who cannot afford health insurance or prenatal care be charged with criminal negligence if they miscarry? While I personally believe that life does not begin until birth, i.e., when a fetus can survive on its own or with the assistance of medical equipment and leaves the uterus in some fashion, I am most concerned with the possible legal implications. Also, please keep in mind that the people of Mississippi voted against the personhood amendment in 2011. If, as a state, we can consider a vote of the people to keep the state flag in 2001 as demonstrating that the people of Mississippi have decided that issue and it should not be addressed again in 2017, then the same argument must be applied here regarding personhood. I would urge all Mississippi legislators to consider the will of the people before supporting a strict definition of life beginning as conception.
