Montana and Colorado Join National Momentum With New Personhood Campaigns

Personhood Campaigns will re-launch this week in two states.

Today, July 1 Montana will launch a new personhood campaign. On Thursday, July 2 Colorado will launch their personhood campaign. Both have the goal of protecting every child by love and by law.

Montana and Colorado will join Oregon and Mississippi in gathering signatures for a citizens' initiative to affirm the personhood rights of all humans. Several more states plan to launch later in 2009.

Montana State Representative Wendy Warburton, working with the Montana Pro Life Coalition and Personhood USA to organize the effort in Montana, said, "This effort is about loving mothers, loving babies, and building a society where every single one of us is valued, no matter how young."

Warburton, the Montana Pro Life Coalition and other supporters of Montana's initiative will hold a rally on the steps of Montana's state capitol on Wednesday, July 1 at 9:00 AM.

On July 2, Colorado Right to Life and Personhood USA will introduce a similar amendment for Colorado's constitution. A Press Conference will be held Thursday, July 2nd, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. Colorado State Capitol in front of the west steps.

Keith Mason of Personhood USA said, "This question should have been settled in 1865. There should be no 'three-fifths of a person' – not in Montana, not in Colorado, not anywhere. All humans are people."

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."
