As we come to the close of 2017, we look back on some astounding changes in our nation and forward with optimism that there is a window of opportunity to help bring a shift in our culture to one of ‘enjoying and defending life’ as expressed in our Florida constitution. For those of you who have faithfully supported our efforts through your generous gifts, talents, and prayers, we say thank you! We could not do anything without each and every one of you!
This year we would like to ask for your help with our latest initiative in protecting the innocent pre-born. You’ve probably heard about the right of privacy. The right of privacy is not in the US Constitution, but the US Supreme Court created this right through a series of court cases leading up to Roe v Wade and used it to justify that dreadful decision that has resulted in the death of over 65,000,000 preborn children through abortion.
Shortly after the Roe decision came down, pro-abortion advocates introduced privacy amendments to various state constitutions attempting to strengthen the legal argument for abortion. Florida was one of those states. At the time, protecting the privacy of citizens against government intrusion was an important issue. With the NSA spying on Americans in the Obama era, we can certainly see a need for a right of privacy today.
Should this right of privacy equal a right to abortion though? The FL Supreme Court believes so! They have even ruled that the right to abortion found in the Florida Constitution is greater than the right to abortion found in the US Constitution. The result is that if Roe v Wade were overturned today, abortion would continue in Florida due to the Florida Supreme Courts misuse of the right of privacy!
You can help reign in the Florida Supreme Court though by signing PFL’s newly released Privacy Amendment Petition. Please take the time to sign and return the petition today. After you sign and return your petition, Personhood FL will use your petition to encourage the Constitutional Revision Commission to place the privacy amendment on the ballot in 2018. The lives of innocent children hang in the balance!
Your donation of any amount included will be extremely appreciated by Personhood FL and your best gift is needed more than ever! We would like to ask for your financial support to help continue our efforts through education, petitioning, supporting pro-life bills, legislators, and candidates now and in the coming year. Donate to Personhood FL now!
We pray blessings upon you and your loved ones during this season and for the coming year and thank you again for standing with us. America can only be great again when we choose LIFE!
If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
