Oklahoma court tosses ‘personhood’ amendment

Personhood advocates are trying to get their proposals on the ballot this fall in several states, including swing states such as Florida and Colorado. But so far they’ve made little progress.

A federal judge in Nevada blocked a personhood measure from appearing on the state’s ballot in November. And voters in Mississippi rejected "personhood" last year, a sign that the movement is struggling to gain support even in deeply conservative states.

Colorado voters have twice defeated personhood measures.
