MEDIA ADVISORY, Sept. 9 /Christian Newswire/ -- God is the author of all human rights -- mine, yours -- every human being's from their very beginning. First among these, and upon which all others stand, is our right to be recognized as persons -- as children of God, made in His image and likeness.
Our Floridian Founding Fathers laid upon our shoulders the right, better yet the responsibility, to defend life -- of every human being.
"We, the people of the State of Florida, grateful to Almighty God for our constitutional liberty, in order to secure its blessings and to form a more perfect government, insuring domestic tranquility, maintaining public order, and guaranteeing equal civil and political rights to all, do ordain and establish this Constitution. All men are equal before the law, and have certain inalienable rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life." Florida State Constitution 1885
Knowing the price they paid to recognize our rights, can we do less than to recognize the right upon which all other rights stand -- personhood of every human being?
Our cause is just and our God is able!

PersonhoodFL is a Christian grassroots non-partisan organization founded to establish personhood efforts across Florida to create protection for every child by love and by law. PersonhoodFL is committed to assisting and supporting Personhood Legislation and Constitutional Amendments and building local pro-life organizations through recognizing personhood of the pre-born. When the term "Person" is granted to a human being, it refers to the presence of a particular set of characteristics that grant that individual certain rights such as the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In other words, to be a person is to be protected by a series of God given and constitutionally protected rights.
