• The fundamental civil rights issue of our time.

    Personhood is the fundamental civil rights issue of our time. But what is personhood? What does it mean to be a person? Put simply, a "person" is a human being who is fully protected under the law; and we use the legal term "personhood" to describe this condition. Once a human being is declared a person that individual is guaranteed certain legal rights, such as the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In other words, to be a person is to be protected by a series of God-given and constitutionally protected rights. Sadly, not everyone is granted legal personhood.

Why Personhood?

After forty years of abortion on demand in America, the pro-life movement is losing patience with an incremental legislative approach that simply manages the slaughter of our preborn brothers and sisters. Restoring personhood to the preborn child, with respect to the right to life and without exception, is an effort that is gaining momentum across the country.

When does life begin?

Human embryologists, the real scientific experts in the area of human development, authoritatively conclude that in sexual reproduction, a human embryo is a human being immediately beginning at fertilization - the fusion of an egg and sperm immediately resulting in a new, genetically distinct human being (zygote). At no other logical or scientifically sound point can we say that human life begins.

Personhood and Roe

The very text of the Roe v. Wade decision itself contains the key to its own demise. It points the way to it own defeat. According to Judie Brown, president of American Life League, "Establishing personhood for the preborn child is the most fundamental step in reversing the decriminalization of abortion...." Sadly, pro-lifers have limited themselves to regulating abortion instead of ending it.

We hold these truths to be self evident

The Declaration of Independence makes it clear that we all have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. But what happens when personhood is denied to groups of human beings? How does personhood relate to slavery, Native Americans, the disabled and the preborn? Watch our powerful personhood video to find out.
