The North Dakota House of Representatives has passed the first personhood amendment in the United States, 57-35. Read more
Personhood Nevada, led by Olaf Vancura, is getting signatures for an amendment to the Nevada constitution:
No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. As used in this section, the word "person" includes every human being from the beginning of biological development until death.
In order to support the Personhood Nevada amendment, Nevada Prolife Coalition, led by Chet Gallagher, withdrew its amendment proposal:
The intentional killing a prenatal person, including by surgical and/or chemical abortion, is prohibited in this State, For the purpose of this section only, the term “prenatal person” includes all human beings at each stage of biological development before birth.
Treatment for spontaneous miscarriage, cancer, ectopic and molar pregnancy, twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, and placenta previa shall not be prohibited.
Only embryonic stem cell and other scientific research that intentionally kills a prenatal person shall be prohibited.
Only in vitro fertilization and assisted reproduction that intentionally kills a prenatal person shall be prohibited.
Only hormonal birth control, which has been scientifically proven to kill a prenatal person, shall be prohibited.
No prenatal person shall be killed because he or she was conceived in rape or incest.

You can help with Personhood efforts in your state by doing the following 3 things.
Dear Nevada Lawmaker:
Every year that goes by, over one million children in the womb are brutally murdered through abortion.
The key to unraveling this tragedy is a simple one and it has been known since before Roe v. Wade.
It is Personhood.
During oral argument of Roe, Chief Justice Warren Burger explained to pro-abortion attorney Sarah Weddington that by declaring “by statute that a fetus is a person for all constitutional purposes” a state could outlaw abortion.
By stripping personhood from the unborn, their right to life was revoked. By returning personhood to the weak and the powerless, we can restore their dignity and right to life as human beings. It really is that simple.
African slaves were denied their personhood and were therefore treated as property, bought, sold, and bred as animals. Jews were not considered full persons, so their property could be confiscated and their people eliminated. When Spanish conquistadors colonized America, many wealthy landowners fought to convince the Spanish crown that non-Christian “indians” were not legal persons and could therefore be enslaved.
Personhood is the key to all human rights.
That is why at the heart of the Roe v. Wade opinion is the following heartless pronouncement, written by Justice Blackmun, “the word ‘person’ ... does not include the unborn.”
Not once, since 1973, has the Supreme Court been challenged to reconsider Blackmun’s terrible words.
With federal and judicial tyranny at its apex, we the undersigned request that our Nevada legislators stand up for life in a bold and principled way.
We, the undersigned urge you to support a personhood measure that recognizes that the preborn child is a person with the unalienable right to life.
We, the undersigned expect you to stand up for the values of the people of Nevada by no longer cowering to a federal and judicial tyranny that mandates the destruction of our morals, our families, and our posterity.
We, the undersigned will hold you accountable for your action or inaction in bringing about and supporting a personhood measure, and we will vote accordingly.
