SCOTUS will not hear Personhood Case; Personhood Oklahoma Relaunches Today
Washington, D.C. – 10/29/12 – The Supreme Court of the United States has declined to hear Personhood Oklahoma’s case for free speech. In response, Personhood Oklahoma is re-launching today to begin the petitioning process again.
“In Oklahoma, the people were denied their right to petition and their right to vote,” stated Dan Skerbitz, head of Personhood Oklahoma. “The people have a right to free speech, so we will start again. Women and children deserve better than abortion, and the people of Oklahoma will not rest until our voices are heard, and our women and children are protected from abortion.”
The Personhood movement is the largest prolife grassroots effort in the United States; with thousands of volunteers and churches standing ready to carry petitions and fight against the injustice of abortion.
“ Personhood USA will continue to pursue legislative and initiative efforts in all 50 states and around the globe, until all unique human beings are protected. Neither a pro-abortion president or a pro-abortion court will stop the personhood movement,” confirmed Gualberto Garcia Jones, J.D., legal analyst for Personhood USA.
Personhood Oklahoma has been waiting on word from the Supreme Court challenge, ready to get back to work if the Supreme Court declined the case. Now the effort has been re-launched to put personhood on the ballot in Oklahoma.
Citizens will again exercise their right to free speech, and their right to petition to change the Oklahoma Constitution.
“We know that abortion will be overturned by the people, not by the courts, and that is why we can never give up,” added Keith Mason, President of Personhood USA. “It appears that the Oklahoma State Supreme Court has put a supposed ‘right’ to kill another human being over the legitimate rights to free speech. Their decision was clearly wrong and we will continue to fight.”
