Personhood petitions in all 50 states - approaching 1 million signatures
WASHINGTON, Jan. 10, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Personhood USA, a national pro-life organization dedicated to achieving legal recognition of the personhood rights of all human beings, including the unborn, has announced that it has achieved its goal of having personhood efforts underway in all 50 states.
Personhood USA formed two years ago with the intent to assist grassroots volunteers across the country, helping them to start and coordinate efforts in their own communities to defend the personhood of the preborn human.
The organization has helped to gather over 919,000 signatures in favor of personhood for the unborn so far.
“We are thrilled to have met our goal to be in all 50 states in just two years, and we are so thankful to be closing in on 1 million signatures defending the personhood of the preborn child,” stated Keith Mason, cofounder of Personhood USA.
“Now in every state in America, pro-life volunteers are engaging their communities with the truth of personhood, and are working to change the laws as citizens or lobbying the lawmakers in their state to do their job and protect every person by love and by law.”
Cal Zastro, cofounder of Personhood USA, described the organization as a “support system, giving as little or as much help as needed.” “We have truly been blessed by Jesus Christ,” he said, “as He is accomplishing so much through us in just the past two years.”
“We can’t wait to see what He does, in all 50 states, in 2011. We will keep working hard for the rights of preborn children, knowing that this is the best chance we’ve ever had to end abortion in America.”
