I endorse Personhood Florida. We are all here gathered together at this unique and pivotal point in history where we can save lives and build a Culture of Life in the State of Florida. The Florida Personhood Amendment is a legal foothold that can catapult policies and legislation throughout Florida that promotes the life, liberty ad pursuit of happiness for everyone regardless of how they were conceived. Historically, whenever human dignity and the very personhood of any groups of individuals were denied, the wheels of justice gathered steam by the prayerful perseverence of those who sought rights for their brothers and sisters. It has been proven that We the People of the United States of America caused slavery to be abolished and women to not be regarded as mere property under the law of the land. I look forward to the day of a New Florida that loves and respects all human life. As a Floridian, as a mother, and a United States Citizen I urge each one to stand up and be counted for those who have no voice, for those who are denied such a basic human right as the right to be born. Remember…Goliath lost.
The 14th Amendment reads in part, “nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law” but doesn’t define who a person is. In the majority decision from the Supreme Court case Roe v Wade, Justice Blackmun wrote, “(If the) suggestion of personhood [of the preborn] is established, the [abortion rights] case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.” The Personhood Amendment will define all humans as persons from
January 22 marks the anniversary of Roe v Wade. ProLifers throughout the state will remember the over 50,000,000 preborn children murdered by abortion in the US since that dreadful decision. Prolifers will participate in March for Life events and Prayer Vigils and pastors will preach Sanctity of Human Life sermons. Personhood Florida is planning a big push to gather personhood petitions in churches and at prolife events across Florida in January. During the conference call, we’ll present the plan and provide training on how you can help promote the personhood amendment in your church, city, and/or region.
