Rights for Foetuses not Women

personhoodMore exciting news from ALL. Tired of incremental steps in the erosion of women’s rights, the womb gestapo are now trying to frame forced pregnancy as a human rights issue. How forcing women to continue pregnancy regardless of age, circumstance, circumstance of conception or medical contraindications in any way has anything to do with dignity or human rights I can’t imagine.

PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT RESPONDS TO OBAMA INAUGURATION AT HISTORIC PERSONHOOD CONFERENCE
WHAT:

American Life League’s Personhood Conference

WHEN:

Jan. 23, 2009 8 a.m. to 3 p.m

WHERE:

Liaison Hotel, Washington, D.C.

WHO:

Pro-Life leaders, Judie Brown, president of American Life League; David Bereit, leader of the 40 Days for Life campaign; adult stem cell pioneer Dr. Theresa Deisher; Kristi Burton of the Colorado Personhood movement; and Live Action Films president Lila Rose.

WHY:

Days after the inauguration of the most pro-abortion president in the nation’s history, hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers from across the country descend on Washington, D.C. to respond with a message of personhood.

At ALL’s Personhood Conference, the pro-life movement’s most influential leaders explain the cultural and legislative necessity of recognition of all human beings as persons from the moment of creation until natural death.

“Personhood refocuses the pro-life movement on the issues of human rights and human dignity,” said ALL President, Judie Brown. “It strikes at the root of all the cultural battles the pro-life movement has fought for the last 35 years in a way that flawed incrementalism never will. We’re excited to herald the rejuvenation of the personhood movement – the last real battle in the civil rights movement.”

    What a waste of tie, energyand money these people use.
    Surely they could find a better project : like providing help to those in need who are already BORN.

    Hey Wayne, let me present the late Fatmata Jalloh:

    You’ll be happy to learn that only the mother died.

    Not so in Adama Sannoh’s case:

    In fact, while the anti-abortionists fret about the rights of fetus and use improvements in highly expensive and dangerous in utero surgery as some kind of testimony to personhood, many pregnant women are dying due to lack of basic medicine and reproductive health information:

    Every minute, another woman dies in childbirth. Every minute, the loss of a mother shatters a family and threatens the well-being of surviving children. For every woman who dies, 20 or more experience serious complications. These range from chronic infections to disabling injuries such as obstetric fistula. Maternal death and disability rates mirror the huge discrepancies that exist between the haves and the have-nots both within and between countries.
