We cannot separate moral, scientific and logical truth from our actions
if we are to succeed. The truth is the truth. It cannot be ignored or
denied. For this reason, the pro-life movement, by our statements that
life begins at conception and ends at natural death, will succeed.

Attendees from Colorado were pleased to report on their successful efforts to place
a constitutional amendment on the November, 2010 ballot. Amendment 62 would define
the word “person” to include all human beings from their biological beginnings.
More than a dozen in attendance traveled from the great state of Oklahoma. They utilized
the opportunity to network with national personhood leaders and are excited to report
that they will be launching a personhood initiative drive soon.
“We’re grateful for the wonderful personhood leaders in attendance who were able
to share both their legal expertise and their experience in working on successful
personhood campaigns. The conference bore much fruit, and we go forth with a renewed
spirit to pursue personhood measures, protect the preborn, and end the institution
of abortion throughout the nation.” said Keith Ashley of Personhood Kansas.
