NORCROSS, Ga., August 2, 2012 - Georgia Right to Life President Dan Becker today called on the State Legislature to acknowledge clear public sentiment and approve placing a human rights amendment before all voters in 2013.  “The people of Georgia have shown that they are ready to vote ‘Yes’ on Personhood”, he said.

 

Tuesday’s non-binding GOP primary results showed that a super majority (66% percent of voters) support amending the state constitution to grant the God-given “paramount right to life” to all innocent human beings from their earliest biological beginning until natural death.  

 

Becker pointed to recent national polls that show most Americans no longer support abortion on demand.  He also noted that the elderly, disabled and infirm are aware of the increasing threats to their well-being.

 

“The tide is turning,” he added, “more and more people are rejecting the culture of death that has pervaded our cultures for decades.  It’s time to say no more.”
