California Personhood Amendment Launched

* $26,350 of $40,000 Telethon Goal: Please help and pray and please call 1-800-8Enyart!

* California Personhood Amendment: Today co-sponsors Walter Hoye and Lila Rose launched the California Human Rights Amendment submitting language to their state's attorney general to recognize the personhood of every human, "from the beginning of the biological development of that human being."

* The L.A. Times Today: reports, "Abortion foes… across the country, they have revived efforts to amend state constitutions to declare that personhood -- and all rights accorded human beings -- begins at conception… From Florida to California, abortion foes are gathering signatures, pressing state legislators and raising money to put personhood measures on ballots next year… 'We have big and small efforts going on in 30 states right now,' said Keith Mason, co-founder of Colorado-based Personhood USA. 'Our goal is to activate the population.' But this year, for the first time since the Gallup Poll started asking people in 1995 whether they identified themselves as 'pro-life' or 'pro-choice,' a slight majority of Americans (51%) picked 'pro-life.'"

* From the Egg People Zone: pro-abort bloggers report today's news:
The California Human Rights Amendment to the Constitution of California: Article 1, Section 7 (c) "The term 'person' applies to all living human beings from the beginning of their biological development — regardless of the means by which they were procreated, method of reproduction, age, race, sex, gender, physical well-being, function, or condition of physical or mental dependency and/or disability."

* Courageous Florida Senator Bob Smith: endorses Florida's Personhood Amendment! Way to goo Sen. Smith! Now, as far as that PBA ban goes

* Pro-abortions Whining: if your day is not complete without hearing child killers whine about increasing efforts to protect children by love and by law, then check out this RHRealityCheck article by Amanda Marcotte in which she claims that Christian pro-personhood activists (typically with families of six, eight and ten kids) are against sex whereas pro-aborts like her (with no kids and one Lhasa Apso) are pro-sex. Right. BTW, isn't it just every survey ever taken that shows that married people live longer and have better sex lives, and that churchgoers are happier than pagans? True? No? Yes?

* RHRealityCheck Quotes Bob: in today's personhood article from Wendy Norris: "So many pro-lifers over a period of 30 years have been taught, by example National Right to Life. 'Don't mention God. Don't quote the Bible. We're going to win this on the laws of science.' But the problem with that… is the laws of science don't use the terms right and wrong. By the laws of science, you can't prove that the Holocaust was wrong. So right and wrong come from God.' Look for more state updates on the personhood movement in the coming weeks."

* Help Colorado RTL Get Signatures: If you live in Colorado, could you help circulate the Personhood Colorado & CRTL 2010 petition? We need your help! If you live in any other state, can you help to advance personhood via the 2010 ballot or in one of three different ways?

Today’s Resource: Holocaust survivor, messianic rabbi and author Eliezer Urbach describes Bob Enyart's life's work, The Plot, an overview of the Bible, this way: "Take this startling journey into truth. So traditional, at each step, everything appears familiar. Yet, as an expert guide revealing new wonders (Mat. 13:52), Bob Enyart brings the Bible to life with often ignored passages." Aside from that best-selling book, you can also listen to Bob teaching through that same overview of the Bible and to study dozens of books of the Bible with him, all on CD or downloadable MP3s! And you can subscribe to our monthly Bible Study Albums or our Monthly Sermons resources! Every month, you'll get another Bible Study CD, or the latest Sermons CD, delivered to your door in the U.S. Mail. These subscriptions will help you grow spiritually and intellectually! So many have reported that the biblical knowledge they gain from these resources is so practical that it has helped them improve their marriages, friendships, parenting and grand-parenting, work relations, evangelizing, and so many general life skills!
