DENVER, July 15 /Christian Newswire/ -- Pastor Walter Hoye, Founder and President of Issues4Life, sponsor of the recent California Human Life ballot initiative, is embarking upon a statewide tour of Colorado promoting Amendment 62. Pastor Hoye authored the poignant "Why I Can't Wait" which sparked a wave of energy and excitement for "Personhood Now" among the pro-life community in December 2009.
Pastor Hoye will be meeting with fellow pastors in all four corners of the state, encouraging them to defend all innocent human life, and acknowledging that, as the Amendment 62 slogan states, preborn babies are "Persons, not property."
"The key to protecting innocent lives in November is activating pastors," explained Keith Mason, co-founder of Personhood USA. "We know that there are many pro-life pastors in Colorado who are willing to stand up for human life. We are excited that, with Pastor Hoye's help, we will be welcoming hundreds of pastors in their support of Amendment 62."
Pastor Hoye's speaking tour is commencing Friday, July 16, and will focus on both Catholic and Protestant churches, and will reach out to African-American churches and pastors in the state of Colorado.
"Passing Amendment 62 this November not only reflects what the Pro-Life movement will look like victorious, it sends a very clear message: 'Persons are not property.' Vote YES for Amendment 62," stated Pastor Hoye.
