What Did You Say?

Sometimes people are afraid to speak out about the personhood issue because others might be offended. But “human rights” is a two-way street, in the sense that whenever two people interact, both have a stake in the outcome of their association. Some have a loud voice, others have no voice at all.

From the Denver, Colorado based www.personhoodeducation.org comes news that several countries have either adopted Personhood in their national constitutions or heavily restrict abortion. In our own hemisphere, the Dominican Republic has a pro-Personhood constitution. Eighteen Mexican states have passed Personhood amendments. And Chile has made abortion illegal since 1989.

According to new research from the MELISA Institute, since Chile’s ban on abortion, maternal health has improved, and the number of women seeking illegal abortion has decreased, from 41.3 to 12.7 per 100,000 women (69.2% reduction).
