Georgia Abortion Amendment

ATLANTA (AP) - Two Georgia lawmakers are considering legislation
similar to the "personhood" referendum rejected by voters in
Mississippi last week.
     Sen. Barry Loudermilk, a Republican, and Rep. Rick Crawford, a
Democrat, have both supported similar legislation previously
declaring that life begins at fertilization and seeks to ban
abortion.
     The lawmakers say their proposal would omit references to
fertilization and cloning, words that proved problematic in the
failed Mississippi ballot issue. Mississippi's proposed law could
have made some birth control illegal and deterred doctors from
doing in-vitro fertilization.
