CONFERENCE CALL TUESDAY EVENING

by Sharon Rondeau

When does life begin?

(Apr. 2, 2013) — The pro-life group PersonhoodUSA is hosting a conference call at 7:00 p.m. MDT/9:00 p.m. EDT to discuss changing state law in Colorado to consider a pre-born baby a person.

Current Colorado law states that a baby not yet born is considered a “pregnancy,” not a person.  Therefore, if the baby is lost because of negligence, such as a drunk driver, it cannot be considered murder.

PersonhoodUSA considers a pre-born infant to have the same right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” as is stated in the Declaration of Independence.

Research compiled by Princeton University supports Personhood’s contention that a new human being begins its life upon conception.

One week ago, a “personhood” amendment was passed by both chambers of the North Dakota legislature and will be placed on the ballot for a vote of the people in 2014.  As a result of his signature of the amendment and other pro-life bills, North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple and several legislators have received death threats from “pro-choice” supporters.

One of the bills mandates that abortion in North Dakota will be illegal once a fetal heartbeat is detected.

North Dakota has recently been designated the “most free state” in the nation based on the concept of “individual rights,” something the Framers of the Constitution envisioned.

After signing the bills, Dalrymple stated that they could be considered a test of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, which in 1973 said that Texas’s laws banning abortion except to save the life of the mother were unconstitutional.

The amendment reads:

the inalienable right to life of every human being at any stage of development must be recognized and protected.”

Personhood likens the current plight of the unborn child to that of slaves in the South prior to the Civil War.  In 1858, the Virginia legislature declared that a slave “is not a person.”

PersonhoodUSA has a presence on Facebook, YouTube, and on Twitter. where approximately 160,000 people are following them.

  1. Our rights do not come from the Government. They come from our Creator. This is God given. Not assigned, taken away or changed by the government. The Founders speak of Life as a Right given by God.
    With all the Humanitarian speak today, I ask myself this (and so should we all)
    “Why do individuals feel so threatened by an unborn child??” Mother Teresa told us this: “Abortion is Murder in the womb…A child is a gift from God. If you do not want him, give him to me.–I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is the direct killing of an innocent child…Please don’t kill the child. I want the child. I am willing to accept any child who would be aborted and to give that child to a married couple who will love the child, and be loved by the child.”—-Mother Teresa

  2. It is precisely the Blessing of Liberty referred to as the “Right to Life” that makes Roe v. Wade “Null and Void”. The Founders intended by the words “For ourselves and our Posterity” to illustrate that our Children have the Right to Life as did they themselves. The word “Posterity” means Offspring. Since the process of procreation involves the union of LIVING cells from one’s parents life has never actually been interupted since Adam and Eve. There is NO point at which the male cells and female cells are without life. It is said that life begins at conception. A more precise assertion is that the Life of a NEW person begins at conception. The separate parts were alive when they combined to make a new person. BTW,did you know that all of the Ovi a Woman will ever have were present at HER birth? They mature at puberty.
    One can technically say that 50% of every new person has already been born,at the time that the mother was born. No baby is 100% “UN” Born. See Marbury v Madison,SCOTUS “Any law that is repugnant to the Constitution is null and void”. What is more “repugnant” to the Constitution than the abrogation of the “Right to Life”?
