Previously posted by bitemetechie at Boosting the Signal: Mississippi Personhood Amendment:

Mississippi is voting on Nov. 8 on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment." This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats — including the Attorney General, Jim Hood — backing it.

If you sometimes pass on political action, make an exception on this one. The mainstream media is not reporting on it. If ever there's a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

• Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

• If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

• You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

• Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.

What is your favorite weird food combination? Have your friends ever tried it or do you only eat it in private?

Vanilla soft serve and french fries. I like the mix of taste and textures: salty, sweet, creamy, hot and cold all at once.
I think I've eaten in public once. Haven't had it recently.

How would you describe your sense of humor in six words or less?

It is sometimes private and incoherent.

Was there something you were afraid of as a child that just seems silly to you now?

When I was in elementry school, I was so terrifed of vampires I went to bed with a thick scarf around my neck.

Is there any book you can read over and over again without ever getting sick of it? Do you discover something new every time you read it?

Don't have one currently.
As a kid, it was The Boxcar Children. I loved that series as a kid.
