Personhood

 


Don't be surprised if either a) you don't hear the anti-Christian big corporate media even report this,
or b) they report it in some derogatory, undermining fashion.  Is it any wonder that the major daily
newspapers are suffering huge revenue losses, experiencing layoffs, and in general, being replaced
in many ways by the New Media ?  The Old Media has not reported truth, they have censored, twisted,
and promoted an agenda while "conservative" talk radio for example has grown tremendously.  Even
today, the 150-year-old Rocky Mountain News daily newspaper in Denver, CO is closing down.  If you
want to really learn what's happening of importance to Christians, go to internet sites like
www.WND.com
and www.CovenantNews.com.




Montana Personhood Constitutional Amendment Passes Senate,
First In US History
     

From Personhood USA press release below (2/26/09):
   

"Helena, Montana - 02/26/2009 - Montana's Senate passed constitutional Personhood Amendment,
SB 406, in a 26-24 vote. The amendment, introduced by Senator Dan McGee, passed on its third
reading on the Senate floor this morning.
This is the first Personhood Amendment in U.S. history
to pass a State Senate
."

"SB 406 must continue on to pass the Montana House of Representatives with a majority vote of 74.
The race is on between Montana and North Dakota for the first Personhood legislation in our nation's
history, as Montana's Personhood Amendment continues on to its House of Representatives, and
North Dakota's Personhood legislation continues on to its Senate."
______________________________________________________



 


 



Six states are known to presently have Personhood bills filed in the State Legislatures for 2009:

- Alabama, Georgia, Maryland, Montana, North Dakota, South Carolina
(see bills further below)    

- Maryland's and Montana's filings are each for a Personhood Amendment to their State Constitutions;
  the other four states have Personhood Bills for statutory changes to the state's code of laws
 
(This is a correction to an earlier CCL report entitled: North Dakota Personhood Bill Passes, First In US History (2/24/09) which
   incorrectly stated: "Maryland's filing is for a  Maryland State Constitutional Personhood Amendment; the other five states have bills
   for statutory changes to the state's code of laws" )      

- Establishing in law (by statutory change to the state's code of laws, or by a state constitutional
  amendment) legal "personhood" for pre-birth human beings, at fertilization, with no exceptions,
  satisfies the requirement spelled out in the infamous 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, to "collapse"
  the [so-called] "legal" argument for abortion:
    

-
The 1973 US Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision instructed that if “personhood” for the “fetus” was
  established at fertilization, with no exceptions, then the legal argument for abortion “collapses.”
  “If this suggestion of personhood is established, the [abortion]
case, of course, collapses,
  for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the
[14th]
Amendment.”
  ( Roe v. Wade, http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?court=us&vol=410&invol=113 )    

- In other words, pass "personhood" legislation in your state, as a bill, or as a constitutional
  amendment, and according to the U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision itself, [so-called]
  "legal" abortion is over. 
As the article below reports, Montana has now become the first state
  
in US history to pass a Personhood Amendment (to the State Constitution) in a State Senate
   (or in a State House) !   Praise the Lord !
    

- This effort of passing Personhood legislation can begin with finding even just one Christian,
   principled "pro-personhood" pro-life / anti-abortion State House or State Senate member in
   your state, and asking them to introduce a Personhood Bill.  Look below at the links to the
   actual seven bills in ALA, GA, MD, MONT, ND, and SC
(2 - House and Senate companion bills),
   and consider which version of Personhood legislation best fits your state's constitution,
   state laws, and state legislature. 
Pray, and get started !!!  Abortion could have been banned
   over 36 years ago by vesting legal personhood at fertilization with no exceptions.

God's Requirement for Murder is Justice, not Regulation !   (Ps. 97:2, Prov. 21:3)

Montana Personhood Amendment Passes
State Senate, 26-24 Vote.




Submitted by Keith on Thu, 02/26/2009 - 19:12.
in
Montana

Helena, Montana - 02/26/2009 - Montana's Senate passed constitutional Personhood Amendment, SB 406, in a 26-24 vote.
The amendment, introduced by Senator Dan McGee, passed on its third reading on the Senate floor this morning.
This is the first Personhood Amendment in U.S. history to pass a State Senate.

"Senator Dan McGee, writing the language of SB 406 himself, has shown what it truly means to be pro-life," stated Keith Mason,
of Personhood USA. "Senator McGee's successful efforts on behalf of all human beings at all stages of human life are a giant step
forward in historic efforts to ensure the rights and protection of every individual."

SB 406, which defines person for the purposes of application of inalienable rights, states, "All persons are born free and have
certain inalienable rights...person means a human being at all stages of human development of life, including the state of
fertilization or conception, regardless of age, health, level of functioning, or condition of dependency."

"Praise God! The honor of being the first State Senate in U.S. history to recognize the personhood of pre-born children goes
to Montana," commented Cal Zastrow of Personhood USA. "Thanks to the leadership of Sen. Dan McGee, The Montana
Personhood Amendment now moves forward to the State House of Representatives."

SB 406 must continue on to pass the Montana House of Representatives with a majority vote of 74. The race is on between
Montana and North Dakota for the first Personhood legislation in our nation's history, as Montana's Personhood Amendment
continues on to its House of Representatives, and North Dakota's Personhood legislation continues on to its Senate.

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 pre-born.

"If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.

"If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death,
and those that are ready to be slain;

"If thou sayest, Behold we knew it not;
doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it ?
and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it ?
and shall not he render to every man according to his works ?"

Proverbs 24:10-12


Parable of the Good Samaritan

The Saviour said, "Which now of these three, thinkest thou,
was neighbor unto him that fell among the thieves ?"

Luke 10:29-37  [ Answer:  It was the SAMARITAN, not the religious priest or Levite ! ]


"THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR AS THYSELF."

Matthew 19:19


     "If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God
[ including EVANGELISM ] except precisely that little point which the world and the devil
are at the moment attacking
[ i.e., in 20th/21st century America, CHILD-MURDER-BY-ABORTION ]
,
I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ."

     "Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved and
to be steady on all
the battlefield besides is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that one point
."

(1483-1546)

"The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God."
 
Psalm 9:17, KJB

"But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it."

Psalm 94:15, KJB


Biblical "Separation" for a Nation

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion
hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement
hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be
their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord,..." 2 Corinthians 6:14-17a (KJB)
THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE - IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another,
and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent
respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
The Declaration of Independence
is part of the organic law of the United States of America United States Code Annotated
http://uscode.house.gov/search/criteria.shtml
http://lefemineforlife.blogspot.com/2007/10/biblical-separation-for-nation.html


The people of Iraq have far greater freedom to enshrine their national religion of Islam in the legal structure of their country than do Americans
to honor Christianity and Biblical Law in the United States.  Christianity was by far the predominant faith of the founding generations of America,
from Jamestown in 1607 to the Declaration of Independence in 1776, and beyond, as the historical record clearly shows
:

No King but King Jesus!    ((Yeshua Messiah)

and other Historical Documents during over 375 Years of American History: 1606 to 1982
www.christianlifeandliberty.net/NoKingbutKingJesus.doc


The Sixth President of the United States, John Quincy Adams (son of John Adams, the Second US President, and a signer of the
Declaration of Independence), said: "The highest glory of the American Revolution was this; it connected in one indissoluble bond the
principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity."  and "From the day of the Declaration... they (the American people)
were bound by the laws of God, which they all, and by the laws of The Gospel, which they nearly all, acknowledge as the rules of their conduct." 
Tragically, today in 2008, American law has become exceedingly anti-Christian.  Witness the government-protected murder of
One Million pre-birth human beings each year (
www.ldi.org).

The Constitution of the United States should be amended as first proposed by the National Reform Association in 1864, with a Christian Amendment: 

Confession of the Saviour (Messiah) as the Ruler of Nations, including America, by amending the Preamble to the United States Constitution
In 1864, the National Reform Association advocated amending the Preamble of the Constitution of the United States to read, in substance
:
     "We, the people of the United States, humbly acknowledging Almighty God as the source of all authority and power
       in civil government, the Lord Jesus Christ as the Ruler among the nations, his revealed will as the supreme law of the land,
       in order to constitute a Christian government, and in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic
       tranquillity, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the inalienable rights and the blessings
       of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to ourselves, our posterity, and all the people, do ordain and establish this
       Constitution for the United States of America."
