Perry Joins Bachmann, Gingrich, and Santorum in Signing Personhood Pledge

ARVADA, Colo., Dec. 15th, 2011 – Texas Governor Rick Perry has added his name to the list of GOP Presidential Candidates who have signed a pro-life pledge sponsored by Personhood USA.

Perry is the fourth to sign the pledge, joining Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. An open invitation has been extended to Congressman Ron Paul, Governor Mitt Romney, and Governor Jon Huntsman.

“Rick Perry’s signature on the personhood pledge shows he is ‘fed up’ with the scourge of child killing in America, as are all pro-lifers,” commented Steve Deace, a syndicated radio host whose influence in the Iowa Caucuses has been highlighted by numerous national media outlets. “Since he is the only candidate in the race to currently hold executive office, it should be our expectation that he’ll now commit this pledge to action by championing efforts to enact Personhood legislation in the sovereign state of Texas. He is uniquely empowered to advance the cause of Personhood as a governor of a large, conservative state. A man of his word will do exactly that after signing a pledge like this.”

Recently, the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention passed a resolution for Personhood in which they resolved to “encourage our elected Texas legislators to adopt an amendment that would affirm the personhood of the unborn,” a statement directly in agreement with Governor Perry’s signed Personhood pledge.

“We’re pleased that more candidates are standing with the Republican Party’s position on Personhood. There is a high standard for candidates who claim to be prolife, and that standard is the personhood rights of the preborn child. These candidates are pledging to agree with Ronald Reagan, and with the vast majority of Republicans, without compromising on human life,” stated Gualberto Garcia Jones, J.D., legal analyst for Personhood USA. “Personhood is not a new concept. All human beings are people, and all people have a right to live. Candidates who believe in the Sanctity of Life must also believe in the Personhood rights of all children, born or preborn.”

Personhood USA is a grassroots Christian organization founded to establish personhood efforts across America to create protection 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.
