Personhood FL is pleased to announce that the Liberty Counsel’s Mathew Staver has renewed his support for and endorsement of the Florida ProLife Personhood Amendment with the following endorsement: “I strongly support Personhood Florida and applaud their efforts to pass a personhood amendment in Florida. Liberty Counsel is pleased to represent Personhood USA throughout America. The right to life is the right of all rights. Without the right to life all other rights are meaningless. Since January 22, 1973, when the U.S. Supreme Court issued the Roe v. Wade opinion, American has been on the wrong side of life, the Constitution, and most of all America has been on the wrong side of our Creator. Each one of us are accountable for our actions and failure to act. We must pursue every lawful means to defend the defenseless and to speak for the most vulnerable of our brothers and sisters in the womb. I applaud Personhood Florida for its effort to restore the legal protections of personhood to the preborn. I encourage you to be on the right side of history by working to restore a culture of life in Florida and throughout America.”
Staver joins a growing list of leaders who support the Florida ProLife Personhood Amendment including: Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association (AFA), Lila Rose of Live Action, Judi Brown of American Life League, and Mark Crutcher of Life Dynamics Incorporated, and others. These brave leaders realize that the necessity of restoring the sanctity of human life and are willing to make the effort to challenge the culture to defend all innocent human life.
Personhood FL President, Pastor Bryan Longworth said that Staver’s endorsement should encourage Christians to rise up to restore legal protection to every innocent human life: “Mathew Staver is one of the leading Christian, constitutional attorneys of our day and has successfully argued cases before the US Supreme Court. His support for the Florida ProLife Personhood Amendment validates our position that now is the time to amend the FL constitution to define all humans, including the preborn, elderly, and disabled, as persons. We are pleased to have his support and to have the Liberty Counsel’s support to defend the personhood amendment when it goes before the FL Supreme Court for review.”
