NORCROSS, Ga., August 1, 2012/ Georgia Right to Life President Dan Becker today called on the State Legislature to acknowledge clear public sentiment and approve placing a human rights amendment before all voters in 2014. By a 2-to-1 margin the majority party of Georgia has voted to protect all human life from its earliest biological beginning.
Personhood amendments do not grant rights to anyone they merely recognize the God-given rights of every individual human being. The people of Georgia have shown that they are ready to vote Yes on personhood, it is time for the legislature to ensure that the Georgia Personhood amendment is on the ballot, Becker said, . . . time to let every Georgian decide the human rights issue of the 21st century. State law requires legislative approval to authorize ballot amendment questions.
Tuesdays non-binding GOP primary results showed that a super majority (66% of voters) expressed support for amending the state constitution to grant the paramount right to life to all innocent human beings from their earliest biological beginning until natural death. The Amendment question won in 158 of 159 counties, garnering 593,250 votes of the 902,512 cast statewide. In most counties the YES vote was between 71% to 78%.... read more...

Praise the Lord
The pro-life leaders in Georgia have never given up for over 40 years...it’s a beginning....
God bless them all.
The AJC doesn’t mention this on their website. It passed by a large majority.
If an unborn is a person, killing of the person is murder, and murdering a person has no statute of limitations, my question is: can murdering doctors and “mothers” be brought to justice? The justice won’t be done until every single abortionist and whores are brought to justice for their past and present murders.
Only the Republican ballot. I don’t think it was on the Democrat ballot.
“State law requires legislative approval to authorize ballot amendment questions.”
Pardon my skepticism, but the chances of that actually happening are....?
I just don’t see partisan politics as being the larger part of the solution here. I have no doubt that the legislature WOULD act to illegalize infanticide. It would just happen about 3 weeks after the last clinic closed for lack of business. Better to attack it from the demand side of the equation where we’re actually seeing some great progress.
Thank the Lord above!
I voted for it.
And, I want to thank the Freeper who came up with the tagline “Abortion: Human sacrifice to the god of convenience.”
This needs to be stamped on every outgoing envelope in Christian households.
No ex post facto laws.
Awesome news for the born and the unborn!
“No ex post facto laws.”
That was random.
Would “ex post facto laws” restriction apply with mass murderers like abortionists? The Nazi war criminals would not be hanged, because what they did was not illegal at all. After all, those murdered were not legally humans under the laws that they were operating under.
Excellent news. :b:
And people say we can’t get this passed!
The Nuremberg Trials were, sorry to say it, not done under US Law but under the code “the Winner Writes the Rules, and Ususally on the Fly.” Justice Jackson justified his own participation in almost that phraseology.
Even so, sort of a win for justice, because there was at least a form of due process and at least two acquittals in a time when one of the Winners (USSR) wanted to hang the lot of them out of hand.
