“We’re no longer getting our cue from the Biblical Text- we are getting our cue from the party text….we are locked in this bigotry…I think its time for us now to turn back to God..”

Amendment 26 – The Mississippi Personhood Amendment – is a citizens initiative to amend the Mississippi Constitution to define personhood as beginning at fertilization or “the functional equivalent thereof.” Its purpose is to protect all life, regardless of age, health, function, physical or mental dependency, or method of reproduction. The entire proposed Amendment is as follows: Be it Enacted by the People of the State of Mississippi: SECTION 1. Article III of the constitution of the state of Mississippi is hearby amended BY THE ADDITION OF A NEW SECTION TO READ: Section 33. Person defined. As used in this Article III of the state constitution, “The term ‘person’ or ‘persons’ shall include every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning or the functional equivalent thereof.” This initiative shall not require any additional revenue for implementation.

Roe v. Wade arguments make a case for the prote…, posted with vodpod

Personhood USA has released a new video documenting the infamous Roe vs. Wade court case that legalized abortion in the United States. Relevant to today’s battle for human life, the video illustrates the need to recognize unborn children as people.

The video includes actual audio from the court case in which Justice Potter Stewart states, “And the basic Constitutional question, initially, is whether or not an unborn fetus is a person, isn’t it? That’s critical to this case.”

“In 1973, the courts may have had some question as to whether or not an unborn child is a person, but that is certainly not the case today,” explained Gualberto Garcia Jones, J.D. of Personhood USA. “Ultrasound technology, along with the many advances in science and medicine, have shown us with certainty that the unborn child is a human being. And, of course, all human beings are people.”

The video highlights a question from Chief Justice Warren E. Burger. “Could Texas, constitutionally, in your view, declare that, by statute, that a fetus is a person for all constitutional purposes?” asked Burger.

Pro-abortion attorney Sarah Weddington agreed, “The state could obviously adopt that kind of statute.”

Efforts to enact personhood measures are currently underway in every state including citizen-led initiatives in Florida, Ohio, Montana, Nevada, and Colorado. Mississippians are set to vote on Amendment 26 which would define the terms “person” or “persons,” as used in the state constitution, to “include every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning or the functional equivalent thereof.”

The audio from Roe vs. Wade includes what is often coined as the “personhood loophole” of the case in which Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart inquires, “If it were established that the unborn fetus is a person, within the protection of the 14th amendment, you would have almost an impossible case here, would you not?”

“We recognize that the unborn baby is, in fact, a human being, and therefore a person, as has been established numerous times in embryology textbooks and by world-renowned geneticists and scientists,” continued Garcia Jones. “This video brings the personhood of the child in the womb to our attention yet again, confirming our need to recognize the rights of these smallest human beings.”

Personhood USA is a grassroots, Christian organization founded to establish personhood efforts across America to create protections for every child by love and by law. Personhood USA is committed to assisting and supporting personhood legislation and constitutional amendments and building local pro-life organizations through raising awareness of the personhood of the preborn.
Personhood USA’s amendments recognize that every human being is a person, and every person has a right to life. Personhood amendments and bills protect every child, no matter their size or age.
