Defeating Personhood: A Critical But Incomplete Victory for Reproductive Justice

The defeat of Mississippi Initiative 26 and the gains for reproductive choice today in Mississippi--while critical--may in the long run be seen as pyrrhic victories given the ominous implications of Initiative 27, the exclusionary voter ID initiative that will disenfranchise thousands of African Americans, immigrants, married women, transgendered people, and Native Americans.
