Mississippi voters were asked Tuesday whether life begins at conception, a state constitutional amendment with a chance of becoming the first victory for the so-called personhood movement that aims to make abortion illegal. If approved, the initiative will almost certainly bring legal challenges because it is at odds with the U.S. Supreme Court's 1973 landmark Roe v. Wade decision that gave women the right to an abortion. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis)
