As our Floridian Founding Fathers said in the preamble of our 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…”
As Floridians, we want to restore this state to that covenant by ending abortion through a Constitutional Amendment called Personhood. This defines the pre-born, the elderly and the disabled as persons so that their lives are protected by love and by law.
This initiative will restore the mantle of cultural reformation and healing to pastors as they share the revelation of personhood to their congregations: that we are made in the image of God, and because we are, every life is precious and is to be protected. People who have had abortions are getting healed as the door opens for repentance and forgiveness. God is turning hearts and minds to Himself and His Ways of “Life and that more abundantly.”
We are targeting petitioning efforts to the years 2012 and 2013, because a bill was passed in our state, changing the life of the petitions from 4 years to 2 years. We are taking this opportunity to use better language that the Family Research Council and the American Family Association are endorsing. Adapting our personhood amendment to this language will enable all the states to come into unity anticipating and facilitating the federal personhood amendment. It has been designed by a think tank of personhood attorneys and satisfies 11 conditions needed to unite several pro-life ministries and legal teams.
We are asking every church, every pastor to petition for personhood on January 22, 2012, the Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. Will you join us and help us get the word out? We have specific strategy and we need Christians to pray.
We are asking our volunteers to focus on contacting churches in November and December rather than petitioning and distribute petitions in those churches for Sanctity of Human Life Sunday in January. We are currently organizing teams of volunteers in every Florida county to contact churches. Will you help us take the message of life to every church, every pastor in your county? Please join us for a conference call/training Tuesday, November 15 from 9 – 10 PM where we’ll go over how to contact the churches and pastors. This call will cover key strategies for ending abortion and protecting all innocent human life. Register to join us on the call below.Sign up for Personhood FL's monthly volunteer conference call.
