Mississippi senator introduces federal anti-abortion bill with parallels to Florida ‘personhood’ amendment

Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Mississippi, introduced a bill yesterday that aims to undo abortion rights by extending constitutional rights to the unborn — a legislative move that is similar to Florida’s proposed “fetal personhood” amendment. #

According to OpenCongress, the “Life at Conception Act” currently has nine co-sponsors in the Senate, all them Republicans. #

Wicker’s bill is reminiscent of an initiative currently sponsored by Personhood Florida, which aims to ban abortion, as well as some forms of birth control. Personhood Florida has been increasingly active lately, drumming up publicity for its iniative with a March for Life on the anniversary of landmark abortion-rights case Roe v. Wade. #

In an article published yesterday, the head of Personhood Mississippi expressed his support for Wicker’s legislation: “There’s no way it’s going to get out of the Senate this year … [but] the reason I personally appreciate what Sen. Wicker is doing in that is that it shows voters where people stand.” #

“The sanctity of human life for all, including the unborn, is something that is deeply rooted in my beliefs and reflected in the values of Mississippians,” Wicker said in a press release. “I am proud to introduce legislation that would settle this important life issue once and for all. January is Sanctity of Human Life month, so this is a good time to remember how special the gift of life truly is.” #
