Please join us at our 'Fetal Personhood - What Would It Mean' event on Thursday, August 27, at 7pm at Temple Beth Or in Raleigh.
The fetal personhood legislation is a bold move, and it goes far beyond making abortion illegal.
Fetal Personhood involves establishing that fetuses, even fertilized eggs, are "persons" under the protection of the U.S. Constitution. They define person as a human being at any stage of life, starting at fertilization! Learn what such a bill would mean to women and families with regard to birth control, miscarriage, pregnancy, birth, abortion, illness, and end of life issues, among other things.
Fetal personhood legislation has been passed at some level in various states across the US. See http://data.opi.mt.gov/bills/2009/billhtml/SB0406.htm for the bill that passed the Senate in Montana.
