Vote to Ban All Abortion: Nevada Personhood

The Nevada Prolife Coalition has taken steps to petition the state government to allow voters to define unborn human life as persons with a constitutional right to life, prohibiting "the intentional taking of a prenatal person's life," thus making all abortion illegal.

To get the question on a statewide ballot, the group must gather more than 72,000 valid signatures from the state's three congressional districts.

A coalition of abortion rights groups is opposing the anti-abortion effort.

A similar effort last year to ban abortions in Nevada failed after a district judge ruled the petition language was too vague.

The petition is similar to a failed 2010 petition pushed by the Personhood USA group, which is pursuing anti-abortion laws across the country. That petition was rejected by Carson District Court Judge James Russell, who found the language too vague to be clear to voters.

It’s unclear whether the Nevada Prolife Coalition petition is connected to Personhood USA. The man who filed the petition, Chet Gallagher, is a well-known anti-abortion advocate who was involved with the Personhood effort in Montana last year.

The group, however, is not yet properly registered with the Nevada Secretary of State’s office to adovcate for or against an initiative petition, said deputy secretary of state Scott Giles. To begin collecting signatures the group would first have to file the necessary paperwork.

From "Personhood USA Releases New Video Documenting Infamous Roe vs. Wade Court Case" posted at PRWeb 9/15/11

Personhood USA has released a new video documenting the infamous Roe vs. Wade court case that legalized abortion in the United States. Relevant to today’s battle for human life, the video illustrates the need to recognize unborn children as people.

The video includes actual audio from the court case in which Justice Potter Stewart states, “And the basic Constitutional question, initially, is whether or not an unborn fetus is a person, isn’t it? That’s critical to this case.”

“In 1973, the courts may have had some question as to whether or not an unborn child is a person, but that is certainly not the case today,” explained Gualberto Garcia Jones, J.D. of Personhood USA. “Ultrasound technology, along with the many advances in science and medicine, have shown us with certainty that the unborn child is a human being. And, of course, all human beings are people.”
