The personhood movement is advancing all over the country. To see what's happening in your state go to Personhood USA. Here in Virginia, Delegate Bob Marshall has introduced HB 112 which recognizes all unborn children as persons with constitutional rights. Unfortunately, the bill is not being supported by the Virginia Catholic Conference or the Virginia Family Foundation, presumably because they believe a court test would not be upheld. But the fact is, that there could not be a better time for personhood bills. Chief Justice John Roberts made it clear in the recent decision on campaign financing that the court is not a slave to precedents based on flawed interpretations. Roe v. Wade is a perfect example of a court legislating rather than interpreting the Constitution.
We've been using the incremental approach now for almost 40 years. It isn't working as the video below argues. It's time for personhood! If you live in Virginia contact the members of the Courts of Justice subcommittee and ask them to support HB 112. If you go to the subcommittee page you can get their contact information by clicking on their names. Please help get this bill out of subcommittee. It's time for personhood for our unborn brothers and sisters. Don't let them continue to be our 21st century Dred Scotts, considered less than persons and suction fodder for the abortionists. If you live in another state visit the personhood website linked at my blog and check out what's happening in your state. If nothing is, maybe you can be the catalyst to start something. Remember, all politics is local and we can be salt, light and yeast in our state and county governments.
