The California Personhood Movement
The fight for life is raging nationwide right now like never before and we wish to thank you for your conscientious decision to support every preborn child's right to life. We are Personhood USA and our goal is simple: Together, we will glorify Jesus and then stop the dehumanizing of and destruction of preborn people.
California is one of the few states that, based on the Constitution of the state, allows for a Constitutional Amendment to be passed by the people. Which means every person who respects life MUST do their part to stop the injustice.
The organizers that got personhood on the ballot in Colorado, would like to help in California as well. By getting personhood on the ballot, we force the question that the pro-death side does not want to answer, "when does life begin"?
Personhood USA is about establishing the personhood of the unborn. Why? Well, anyone deemed a "person" is protected under the constitution and granted the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. All humans are people, it's just common sense, and all humans deserve rights.
We are committed to restoring the God given right to life to all humans!
We can strategically restore human rights in 17 different states by amending each state's constitution.
Friends, this isn't a fairy tale. It isn't fiction. This is real and it's happening right now.
Please get involved as either a volunteer or become a Personhood Advocate with a one time or monthly donation.

How can you help?:
Any help is useful. Whether you can spend a few hours a day or only a few minutes one time, every little bit helps pave the way to the end of abortion.
The first step is to submit the legal language of the amendment to the Secretary of State's office and have it approved.
Once the legal language is approved, it's time to start gathering registered voter signatures.
In order for the amendment to be put on the ballot and voted on come the next election (in 2010) California state law requires a petition be circulated and signed by a number of people equal to at least 8% of votes cast for governor during the last state election.
State Law mandates that the people of California have 150 days to pool together the required signatures. The required signatures must be turned in to the secretary of state's office no later than 131 days prior to the date of the coming election. In CA each year the secretary of state will set a complete schedule showing the maximum filing deadline and the certification deadline by the counties to the secretary of state. There is a recommended submission date of "full check" and random check". These dates are only recommended.
That means, that once the language for the amendment is approved by the state supreme court, you can begin collecting signatures right away. Here's what you can do:
Volunteer – Would you like to help? Sign up here. Give us your name, address, phone number & email address so we can contact you with updates and important information.
