Women’s rights supporters use satire to battle latest ‘personhood’ measure

Colorado soundly defeated anti-abortion "personhood" ballot initiatives in the last two election cycles. Voters found the move to grant fertilized human eggs all of the rights of adult citizens of the state absurd and untenable. Personhood supporters have vowed to try again next cycle, saying they're fighting an educational and moral battle and that winning will take time. The same battle is now waging in Georgia, where hard-core Republican Christian Rep. Bobby Franklin's personhood legislation is drawing an outraged response from women's rights supporters around the nation.
