There is enough flexibility in U.S. and State laws for most cities and counties to legally define when a human being should be considered a person.
The steps are simple a city council member could propose a resolution that recognized all human beings both born and preborn as persons. If this resolution receives majority support during a vote, legally all human beings in that city would have equal protection. While this step alone will not end abortion it would be a significant step forward. In 2015 many of these local politicians will be up for reelection. That is why we believe this is a great time to push this issue. During the first meeting of the year Campaign for Humanity supporters will attend and use this time to call on current members to pass this resolution. It will be cold and general public may not be allowed to speak until the end. Even with these obstacles this campaign is a worthy undertaking.
In one meeting cities across the nation could choose to legally recognize the humanity of every living person born and pre-born. Many city councils will have their first meeting of the year during the second week of January 2014. With midterm elections coming up this is the perfect time to remind them who they work for and what we want. We are calling for all those who support life to join their local city council for the first meeting of the year. Our mission is to demand that they amend their definition of person to included all human beings from their biological beginning until their natural end.
Good Stewards for Humanity is excited to announce our “We Are People Too!” petition drive. The goal of this event is to collect signatures for the Recognition of Humanity petition. The event will happen in two parts, in April and May we recruit supporters; then in the first week of June, we will attempt to double that number in one week. Goals will be met by way of each supporter recruiting as many new supporters as possible. The primary reason that Roe won in that infamous case, was that the pre-born had not been recognized as a person. The definition for the term person in the law remains vague and does not include the pre-born. Amending this definition would not be a difficult task for our current legislators if properly motivated. Every city in America could simply decide to amend their definition of person to recognize the pre-born as persons. If you believe the pre-born are human beings join us in demanding a change to this definition in your city and county.
