/ -- A new video from Senator Ted Cruz affirms South Carolina's Personhood resolution, in which 79% of Republicans called for a Personhood amendment to the state constitution.
Cruz states that he would support legislation like South Carolina's Personhood resolution, which he mentioned specifically. In a crowded Republican race, it's noteworthy that Personhood USA's resolution passed with a higher percentage than any presidential GOP candidate has ever won with in South Carolina.
The question read: "Should Article I, Section 3 of the South Carolina Constitution be amended to include the following language? The privileges and immunities of citizens of South Carolina and the United States shall not be abridged, so that no person shall be deprived of life without due process of law, nor shall any person be denied the equal protection of the laws. These rights shall extend to both born and pre-born persons beginning at conception."
Personhood USA's resolution in South Carolina passed by a landslide majority, gathering nearly a quarter of a million affirmative votes, and was the largest show of support by percentage in any public vote held on personhood.
"Candidates in the presidential race cannot forget that 79% of the base in South Carolina believes that preborn children deserve full legal protection," stated Jennifer Mason, Personhood USA Communications Director. "Truly pro-life candidates must not lose sight of the fact that the majority of South Carolina voters in the primary have already voted in support of full personhood rights for unborn children."
