Montana and North Dakota move toward Personhood Amendments

Posted on: February 26, 2009

From Personhood USA:

Helena, Montana – 02/26/2009 – Montana’s Senate passed constitutional Personhood Amendment, SB 406, in a 26-24 vote. The amendment, introduced by Senator Dan McGee, passed on its third reading on the Senate floor this morning. This is the first Personhood Amendment in U.S. history to pass a State Senate.

“Senator Dan McGee, writing the language of SB 406 himself, has shown what it truly means to be pro-life,” stated Keith Mason, of Personhood USA. “Senator McGee’s successful efforts on behalf of all human beings at all stages of human life are a giant step forward in historic efforts to ensure the rights and protection of every individual.”

SB 406, which defines person for the purposes of application of inalienable rights, states, “All persons are born free and have certain inalienable rights…person means a human being at all stages of human development of life, including the state of fertilization or conception, regardless of age, health, level of functioning, or condition of dependency.”

“Praise God! The honor of being the first State Senate in U.S. history to recognize the personhood of pre-born children goes to Montana,” commented Cal Zastrow of Personhood USA. “Thanks to the leadership of Sen. Dan McGee, The Montana Personhood Amendment now moves forward to the State House of Representatives.”

SB 406 must continue on to pass the Montana House of Representatives with a majority vote of 74. Once it passes, it is to immediately become a part of the state’s constitution. The race is on between Montana and North Dakota for the first Personhood legislation in our nation’s history, as Montana’s Personhood Amendment continues on to its House of Representatives, and North Dakota’s Personhood legislation continues on to its Senate…
