Happy Thanksgiving from Personhood FL. Aren’t you thankful your mother chose life? I know I am. I’m also thankful that abortion was illegal in my state when I was born. Wouldn’t it be nice if abortion were illegal today? Well, it can be, and you can help it happen!
I’m thankful that you have joined with Personhood FL to help end abortion and protect all innocent human life in FL. Over the past year, we have connected with prolifers in every region of Florida who have joined in this fight to restore the sanctity of human life. With your help, we will build on this momentum in the coming year to make every region, every county, every city, every church, every neighborhood prolife.
I’m thankful for all of the prolifers who have volunteered in prolife pregnancy centers, prayed at abortion clinics, counseled women considering abortion, helped a woman in a crisis pregnancy, adopted children, stood for life, and exposed abortionists responsible for shedding innocent blood. I’m thankful for the babies who have been saved through these efforts and the mothers and fathers, grandparents, and friends who have been spared the horrors of abortion as well. In the upcoming year, I look forward to joining you on the front lines as we fight to save innocent human life.
I’m thankful for the prolife political victories we’ve had over the past year. First the proposed Amendment 6 was defeated in the November election. While this amendment claimed to prohibit tax funding of abortion, it actually didn’t prohibit any funding of abortion that isn’t already prohibited by state law, and it would have permitted tax funding of abortion in cases of rape and incest. It also would have added language to the Florida Constitution that would have inferred that the FL and US Constitutions contain a “right to abortion.” This is why Personhood FL and Personhood FL ProLife PAC opposed Amendment 6. (View our analysis of Amendment 6 here.)
I’m also thankful that in FL over 80 candidates for public office signed a Personhood Affirmation committing to a 100% comprehensive prolife position. I thank these candidates for having the courage to defend all innocent human life, and I thank you for voting for them. I thank God that for the first time in Florida, candidates who are 100% prolife were elected to federal, state, district, and local offices. In the upcoming year, Personhood FL and Personhood FL ProLife PAC look forward to joining with you to educate prolife legislators on the importance of protecting all innocent human life.
I’m thankful today that God has granted us to live in a country and a state where we the people have the ability to petition our government for a redress of grievances and amend our constitution peacefully, without succession. As we thank God today, let us resolve to pray and work to pass the Florida ProLife Personhood Amendment to restore the sanctity of human life, end abortion, and protect all innocent human life, and signup for Personhood FL’s next volunteer conference call Thursday, December 11 from 7 – 8 PM EST.
