On Tuesday, voters in Mississippi will head to the polls to vote on an amendment to the state Constitution that would designate inseminated human eggs as legal persons from the “moment of fertilization.” This would set up a challenge to Roe v. Wade and could lead to outlawing many forms of birth control.
