Oklahoma’s Personhood Bill

[alternate title: The Spilled Semen Amendment]

If you’re a feminist you’re likely following the various Personhood bills floating around the country. I posted about Mississippi several months back, in fact. I find the entire thing incredibly troubling since, much like SOPA, these bills are trying to accomplish one thing but actually doing a whole other thing. In this case, they’re outlawing birth control.

So, I was ever so pleased — and amused — to see Constance Johnson’s response to Oklahoma’s bill. I think she explains herself better than I ever could so read it all for yourself.

Speak your piece!
