Wisconsin Assembly Republican wants to give eggs status of persons.

Human eggs, of course -- although it makes as much sense to rule that chicken eggs are legally chickens.

I wanted to say that  Republican Andre Jacque belongs in Mississippi, which tried this earlier in the year, but even voters there rejected this nonsense.

Maybe he thinks our schools are worse.

Of course, passing this bill would make every woman who fails to get pregnant, who might have a  fertilized zygote that fails to implant, guilty of involuntary manslaughter.  

Maybe Jacque has contributors in the prison industry as well.

No really.

It's worth noting that Wisconsin Right to Life is on record opposing this type of measure, as the group believes it would be counterproductive and lead to inevitable and expensive legal fights. And under Wisconsin law, a constitutional amendment has to pass in both chambers in two consecutive sessions of the legislature, after which it's put to voters on a statewide ballot.
