Personhood is a plan to amend each state constitution to define that a “person” with the right to life is any human being — from the unborn child at the beginning of biological development on through natural death.

Unlike other states, Florida has no ballot deadline for state constitutional amendment petitions. Although each signature expires four years after its signing, the Personhood Amendment signature drive is valid indefinitely — or until we have enough signatures to put it on the ballot. Unlike other states, such as Colorado or Mississippi, which require less than 100,000 signatures, Florida’s requirement is close to 700,000.
As one Florida state legislator said to me earlier this year, “Personhood is where we are going eventually. Why not get it started now?”
We are being realistic, yet optimistic, in saying that we have a big job ahead of us. We began in earnest less than a year ago and still have many battles ahead of us. We are pleased with the support and growing interest we are seeing right now especially with the Colorado vote in the news and the looming Mississippi vote in 2011.
Can Personhood actually work?
There is one important aspect of the Personhood Amendment most people don’t realize. In every state where this has been tried, even though it hasn’t passed yet, the opinion of the public has shifted dramatically toward the position of “pro-life with no exceptions.” For instance, the Republican candidate for Senator and two candidates for Governor in Colorado have endorsed Personhood. In fact, throughout the country, we have more candidates than ever before who are pro-life without exception. This is partially due to Personhood raising the standard.
The Republican Governor candidate in Mississippi has also endorsed Personhood and is pro-life with no exceptions.
So Personhood works, not just as a ballot initiative, but also as a way to make sure our candidates are truly pro-life. It works also as a way of educating and changing public opinion. In other words, even when we have lost, we have won support. In the end, we will need all three in order to make this a reality — education, voter initiatives and legislation.
In the meantime, wouldn’t you like to see something like the following happen in Florida?
In 2008, only a few candidates in Colorado endorsed Personhood. Here is the list of Colorado candidates who have endorsed Personhood (Amendment 62) in 2010. Tom Tancredo is the only Independent on the list, the rest are Republican candidates.

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?
Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?
Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?
These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981
Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.
The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.
“…a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine
