What is Personhood?
Do you agree that every person should have the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness?
In Justice Blackmun’s statement of Roe v. Wade, he that said that if the fetus could ever be proved to be a person, the decision would collapse. Now with increased technology and ultra sound, we know that personhood begins at the moment of a baby’s biological development, the moment of conception. Over 50% of Americans are now pro-life.
Just as the wicked Dred Scot decision ruled that African Americans were non-persons and could be property, so Roe v. Wade has declared that the pre-born are non-persons and are considered property. As Dred Scott was never “overturned” but amended, that is what we are seeking to do: repent from the wicked decision of 9 people that brought death on our whole nation and amend our way, state by state, appealing to the people’s hearts to simply establish the personhood of the pre-born, the disabled and the elderly to protect their right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness by love and by law. Their right to life, their personhood is self-evident and is inalienable.
Personhood Florida needs 676,811 valid petitions for ballot access. When we have ten percent of that number, 67,681 valid petitions, the Personhood Amendment will go to the Supreme Court of Florida for approval for ballot access. Unlike other states whose amendments may be challenged and struck down just prior to ballot access or even after voter approval, Florida’s amendments are judged by the courts near the beginning of the process. That is one great advantage in our favor. Each petition is valid for two years, but we may continue to collect petitions until we reach our goal. This is another great advantage — no state-imposed deadline!
Will you work with us to first get to the 67,681 goal?
Will you work with us diligently and urgently until we obtain the final 676,811 valid petitions needed for ballot access?
Will you work with us diligently and urgently until we obtain 60% of the vote to pass the Florida Personhood Amendment?
Will you stand with us until all persons are protected by love and by law?
We cannot fail if we continue to battle for Personhood!
If not now, then when? If not you, then who?
Perhaps you have been born “for such a time as this.”
Will You help end abortion in Florida? You may go to our Endorsement page to see who is endorsing us (and this number is steadily growing!) We would love your endorsement! View our Resource page and read a letter to pastors from my pastor, Pastor Jeff Steffel of Grace Family Church, Port Saint Lucie. We also have posted a legal memo from Allied Defense Fund, a check list of what churches can do to help, and the petition in English and Spanish. Also available is an overview of the Personhood initiative and a bulletin insert for churches.
Our Florida state constitution requires something of us:
Quoting from The Florida Constitution:
“We, the people of the State of Florida, being grateful to Almighty God for our constitutional liberty, in order to secure its benefits….. do ordain and establish this constitution ……All natural persons, female and male alike, are equal before the law and have inalienable rights, among which are the right to enjoy and defend life ….”
If you believe that every person should have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, join us today. Mail in your petition, add a few dollars to cover the costs and help others do the same!
- It’s time to accept the right of “defending life”.
- It’s time to protect the innocent in love and in law.
- It’s time to recognize constitutional personhood for all human beings.
- It’s time for Florida to end abortion and euthanasia.
