Personhood USA: Now and Then
Personhood is way out of the mainstream. So when Personhood USA, the organization behind Initiative 26 in Mississippi wrote on their blog this morning about having lost yesterday, here's how they described it to their supporters:
"Today, Mississippi voters have decided not to pass the Mississippi Personhood Amendment. Personhood USA understands that changing a culture—and changing a country—will not happen with one election, and so it is not unexpected."

But it doesn't seem like that was the outcome they always expected...
“It looks like it’ll be the first one to pass in this country,” Personhood USA founder Keith Mason told LifeSiteNews.com.
