Pro-Life? What Is It?
What it means to be Pro-Life can be summed up in one word: Personhood.
So, What Is Personhood?
Personhood clearly defines humanity by recognizing human beings as “created in the image of God” (Genesis 1:27) from the beginning of their biological development, without exceptions, and the recipients of the God-given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as legal persons.
Personhood focuses the discussion on the baby’s entitlement to the rights of personhood and the inhumanity of anything less.
Personhood allows voters to see that abortion is too great an evil to be left to individual discretion and personal choice.
Personhood believes all human life should be protected by love and by law.
Personhood is what the Pro-Life movement looks like victorious!
As black Americans, Personhood hits close to home.
Our quest to be recognized as legal persons, by the highest law of the land, was, and is, even today, a Personhood movement.
In my opinion, the term “person” applies only to all living human beings from the beginning of their biological development as human organisms, regardless of the means by which they were procreated, method of reproduction, age, race, sex, gender, physical well-being, function, or condition of physical or mental dependency and/or disability.
For me and for the “truth’s sake,” regardless of our pragmatic preferences or personal proclivities, we should all be standing together and fighting together for Personhood.
