Far away in Mississippi a much different ballot measure went down to defeat—the Personhood Amendment, which would’ve declared that a fertilized egg is a human being. This legislation would have criminalized certain forms of birth control, would have forced rape and incest victims to carry to term, and would have outlawed most fertility clinics. Even in Mississippi, one of the most far-right places in America, the measure was defeated by a double-digit margin. Romney was again on the losing side of the issue, supporting the measure and agreeing that personhood begins at conception. This position is well out of the mainstream; with two Supreme Court positions likely on the line in the next election, Romney in effect gave voters one more reason to be wary.
