The North Dakota House of Representatives has passed the first personhood amendment in the United States, 57-35. Read more
Slow and Steady wins the race, thank you for your faithfulness!
Thank you so much!
Because of your sacrifice and support, we have moved closer to protecting every child by love and by law.
Amendment 62 did not pass, but we increased the vote by 3%! Indeed this is a baby step towards protecting all babies in Colorado. I am still excited!
We have conducted the biggest pro-life educational outreach in Colorado’s recent history.
Over 850,000 pieces of literature have gone out, including 580,000 of the powerful full color Personhood Newspaper which helped save at least one child’s life!
Taking time to think of how many we have reached in this campaign is so rewarding!!
How many girls have seen this information, and had their hearts changed toward life? We will likely never know the full extent of the life saving impact we have had here, until we reach heaven.
You faithfully defended the preborn in word and deed!
You treated “the least of these” with dignity and respect, as for the rest of Colorado, there is a message for them: “And he will answer, ‘I tell you the truth, when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me.’ Matthew 25:45
But because of your help we were able to make over 1,500,000 calls 1,000 radio ads in Colorado advocating for prenatal Personhood!
We all should be very encouraged by this vote, because it shows that we are on the right path.
And our path is not completely uncharted. We only have to look to the suffragette movement in South Dakota to realize that our current path is leading us to victory.
Pro-life advocates are not the first to try to build, or re-build, a movement through the initiative process.
From 1890 to 1918, women in South Dakota mounted campaign after campaign to try to gain the right to vote. At first, the state constitutional amendment was badly defeated, but the suffragettes would not give up that easily.
Republicans didn’t support the suffragettes, and neither did Democrats. The wealthy elites looked down their noses at them, and their constitutional amendments failed to pass not once, not twice, but six times before on the seventh try, they triumphed and won the right to vote.
The lesson to learn from South Dakota women is that movements take time to build, but that persistence in the initiative process pays out huge dividends.
Every year the suffragettes came back on the ballot their ranks grew. Every year they were able to educate more people, to build more networks, to advance their position, to make new alliances.
The pro-life movement has much to learn from this. Research shows that out of several dozen pro-life initiatives, only two were ever attempted more than once. Amendment 62 is one of them, and the fruits of perseverance are already beginning to show.In only two years the personhood movement in Colorado has gone from simply getting on the ballot in 2008, to getting on the ballot in 2010 and literally touching millions of Coloradans through their churches, the media, the mail, telephone, and most importantly during face to face conversations with our growing list of volunteers.
Plain and simple, when we start a Personhood Campaign, we set out to CHANGE THE CULTURE AROUND US!
Now we look forward to continuing the momentum for personhood around the country.
At the beginning of next year many states will introduce personhood legislation.
And even now we are preparing for an epic battle in the most pro-life State in America. Mississippi will vote on Personhood next November, so it is time to get back to work!
Thank you for continuing the fight for the rights of the preborn child.
Together, we must not rest until every child is protected by LOVE and By LAW.
