Anti-choice advocates failed to gather enough signatures to get a so-called personhood measure onto the Montana ballot. Montana ProLife Coalition collected less than half of the signatures needed to have citizens vote on whether life should be defined as beginning at fertilization. This fits into a broader trend of these anti-abortion proposals failing across the country. Personhood is a particularly troubling measure because it could outlaw in vitro fertilization, abortion, and some types of birth control.
