Today, voters in Mississippi will consider an amendment that would end all abortions and could also restrict in vitro fertilization and certain kinds of birth control. The ballot initiative is part of a national campaign called Personhood USA that next year will target Florida, Montana and Ohio. On this hour of “All Sides,” we’ll hear from a reporter covering the campaign in Mississippi, as well as proponents and opponents for the campaign already begun in Ohio.
