Here is an encouraging note from Bryan Longworth, Director of Personhood Florida …
The anniversary of Roe v. Wade was a very successful time of reaching out with the Personhood message all across the state of Florida! We are being asked to speak in churches, schools and to come petition in our local Care Net Walk for Life’s. Glory to God for the saints working together to build the Kingdom of God and in the words of Florida’s state constitution, “to enjoy and defend life,” and extend that to the pre-born, disabled and elderly.
Soon to be published will be the nine divisions of the state of Florida with Division Contacts for each area. These will be posted on a map of Florida with the counties in each area and the cities in each county. It is now our task to find county liaisons and city liaisons. It is time to step forward and Take Your City! You need no experience — just a burning desire to see abortion ended and for the right to life to be extended to every person in Florida! We will be posting the maps and the goals in our next email!
Over the last week and a half, Personhood Florida has received approximately 2,000 petitions in 55 large envelopes from churches across the state of Florida and many more smaller envelopes from individuals. The churches were from many denominations, including Missionary Alliance, Assemblies of God, Baptist, Roman Catholic, Nondenominational, Pentecostal and Presbyterian. We now have collected over 15,000 petitions and will be contacting the churches who responded to recruit more Personhood liaisons in cities and regions across Florida. I want to thank all who have worked to make this possible. With your help, we’re going to make history in Florida by defending all innocent human life through the Personhood Amendment.
We are now well on our way to reaching the 10 percent threshold needed for the Florida Supreme Court to review the Personhood Amendment language, but we have much work to do. Our goal is to average 1,500 petitions per day for a period of about two years to reach our 1,000,000 petition goal. (We intend to overshoot the 676,811 signatures needed by a wide margin in order to counter any challenge.) To do this, we will need to have Personhood liaisons in each region, city, and church. We will also need more volunteers for various tasks, including data entry. I look forward to working with you as we build the most comprehensive pro-life network ever assembled across the state of Florida.
