Keith Mason of Personhood USA said, "This question should have been

Dr. Annie Bukacek, President of the Montana Pro Life Coalition, said,
"Based on their intrinsic value and dignity, every human being, from
the moment life begins, deserves equal protection under the law. This
is the principle of personhood. It's high time the people of Montana
had an opportunity to vote on this fundamental human rights issue."

every human being has an inalienable right to life that is precious and must be protected. IFRL is
