This is what we will be doing in Fort Pierce on the IRSC campus on October 23-24th. Dan Becker, the president of Georgia Right to Life will be coming to train us. The first day will be training for the pro-life students with time to role play and practice. The second day will be an outreach to the campus students by the students that have been trained.
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. 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.
Alan Keyes explains why personhood is so important, from a Biblical and historical perspective. Enjoy! Alan Keyes on Personhood at RTL Colorado
When I tell righteous people that they will live, but then they sin, expecting their past righteousness to save them, then none of their righteous acts will be remembered. I will destroy them for their sins. [“you murder the innocent…” is included in verse 25] And suppose I tell some wicked people that they will surely die, but then they turn from their sins and do what is just and right. For instance, they might give back a debtor’s security, return what they have stolen, and obey my life-giving laws, no longer doing what is evil. If they do this, then they will surely live and not die. None of their past sins will be brought up again, for they have done what is just and right, and they will surely live. “Your people are saying, ‘The Lord isn’t doing what’s right,’ but it is they who are not doing what’s right. For again I say, when righteous people turn away from their righteous behavior and turn to evil, they will die. But if wicked people turn from their wickedness and do what is just and right, they will live. O people of Israel, you are saying, ‘The Lord isn’t doing what’s right.’ But I judge each of you according to your deeds.
Every person has a right to life, and every citizen has a voice to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. We have a form of government granted by God that allows our voices to be heard. Our collective voices can – and should – change the course of history.
The guest speaker is Dan Becker, Georgia Right to Life President. Dan Becker has pioneered the personhood movement which seeks to end abortion. On July 20th, 2011, Georgia became the first state in the nation where voters resoundingly said, “Yes,” to the Personhood question. His leadership has dramatically changed Georgia from a prochoice state to a prolife state.
Come and learn how you can help make the same change in Florida.
“Our founding fathers said time and time again that they were building a nation for “ages and millions not yet born”. They pledged their lives, their fortunes, their sacred honors for this very purpose. They gave up everything so that “millions not yet born” could have Liberty. If our founders thought so much of the unborn, why do we pledge so little? This is the call of our generation; to stand for the “millions net yet born” to have the same Liberty our founders bled and died for.”
“I do hope that, as a child conceived in rape, I can help to put a face, a voice, and a story to this issue.”
