The Supreme Court on Monday declined to take up a lawsuit over an Oklahoma "personhood" amendment that sought to grant state constitutional protections to human embryos starting at conception, but pro-life advocates say the issue is far from over.
The nation's only pending ballot measure to ban abortion in all circumstances has failed to advance to a vote in November in Colorado.
The Nov. 8 defeat of the "personhood" amendment in Mississippi is galvanizing supporters to have a do-over in the state and also push measures in Colorado, Virginia and at least eight other states, say leaders of the anti-abortion movement.
"That debate is nationwide right now," said Jennifer Mason, communications director for Personhood USA, a Colorado-based group advocating state-level constitutional bans. "Many of my peers are frustrated with the past 40 years of an incremental approach."
