Mississippi to vote on definition of 'personhood'

Mississippi residents are set to vote on a controversial amendment tomorrow that would potentially give legal status to fertilized human eggs. Initiative 26 would define personhood as "every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning or the functional equivalent thereof." Opponents of the measure say it would effectively make abortion illegal.

Ali Velshi speaks with Jonathon Will, Assistant Professor at the Mississippi College of Law, to discuss a law that could redefine the abortion debate for the entire nation.
