Now the Campaign STARTS!
My friends, the faithful in Mississippi need our help this weekend to jump start the effort!
The vision of Les Riley and a handful of families in Mississippi burdened about the injustice of abortion on demand has inspired over 130,000 voters to sign a petition to recognize children as innocent persons, and to protect them by love and by law.
Yesterday the Secretary of State announced that the Personhood Amendment to the Mississippi State Constitution will be on the ballot in 2011! Up to that point the abortion lobby ignored the effort, but on that day pro-abortion forces announced a coalition to stop its passage. Why would they spend the time and effort in one of the most pro-life states in the country? A win in Mississippi can start the unraveling of the legal framework that has resulted in the death of millions of children in the womb, infants, and the infirm here in America.

The effort to get the Mississippi Personhood Amendment on the ballot was a truly grassroots pro-life effort with well over 1000 churches and 2000 volunteers collecting signatures. Their sacrifices of time, hard work, and sacrificial giving during an economic downturn have won the first battle to defend the sanctity of life in Mississippi. Stories abound of lives changed as faithful Christians took advantage of opportunities to share the Gospel and bring help to hurting individuals and families during petitioning.
But bigger challenges loom on the horizon and we need your help now to win the war!
We now need to stand with Les and the 2,000 volunteers in Mississippi and get their campaign started!
Would you consider a contribution of $10, $25 or $50 this weekend to help them get started on Monday?!? To donate directly to Personhood Mississippi please visit personhoodmississippi.com
Thank you very much.
PS there is an online poll right now in MS that shows about 80% of Mississippi will approve the Personhood Amendment today. Click here to check it out (it is half way down the page)
