Constitution Party’s Platform Committee Adds Personhood to Pro-Life Plank

Independent Political Report has learned that the Constitution Party’s platform committee has, in the words of one activist, “Strengthened it’s strongest plank” by adding language praising “Personhood” to the Pro-Life plank of the platform.

Several of the Constitution Party’s longtime activists have been involved in the Personhood movement, including Les Riley of Mississippi and Rick Jore of Montana–both of whom ran their states’ respective Personhood initiatives.

    The Libertarian Party remains the best choice for those that understand limited government means limiting the power of government over the lives of women as well as men.

    Gary Johnson will be our first pro-choice candidates since Harry Browne in 2000. Finally a choice for pro-choice voters.

    “limited government means limiting the power of government over the lives of women as well as men.”

    Half of those babies killed in the womb are female.

    No, I’m not at the convention, but I’m keeping close track of it and won’t comment or rant here until most of the meetings are concluded.

    TK – yes Harry Browne said that he personally opposed abortion, but he also opposed government prohibiting it. That is a pro-choice position, actually quite common among Democrat officeholders who are Catholic.

    Pro-life means someone is against abortion. Pro-choice means they are in favor of the woman making the choice, but not the man (father) involved. The Constitution Party’s stand is pro-life, but that the Federal Governement has no constitutional authority to govern on the issue. This is one of the authorities that the Constitution leaves to the states. If you decide that you would like to purchase a new vehicle each, and others feel you must keep your current vehicle for 4 years, is this something the federal Government should get involved in? Powers not delegated to the Federal government, not probited to the states, are reserved to the states.

    What would you call someone who thinks abortion should be legal and the child’s father should have a say? Or for that matter some other person(s)?

    You left out a part at the end of that…
