While the measure passed the House in North Dakota, the Senate is obviously saner.
Senators voted 29-16 Friday to reject legislation that sought to define as a human being "any organism with the genome of homo sapiens." The "personhood" status would include a developing embryo from the moment of conception, whether inside or outside the womb.
Hmmm. 29 to 16. Pretty convincing majority of normal people, eh?
Yeah, well, we know they will never give up. Blob Blogging Wingnut said of the 'personhood' initiatives:
It's only a matter of time before the equality of all human beings is recognized. Get used to it.
Um. No. YOU get used to having grown-ups in charge.
