Wisconsin Family Action (WFA) has endorsed the Wisconsin Personhood Amendment, legislation that would amend the Wisconsin Constitution to apply personhood rights to preborn children at all stages of development. WFA is an associate of Focus on the Family. Click here for the WFA legislative memo urging co-sponsorship of the personhood amendment. Pro-Life Wisconsin agrees with WFA’s legal findings and conclusions.
Ironically, Clarke Forsythe of Americans United for Life – the pro-life attorney Wisconsin Right to Life brought in for their Day at the Capitol in February to oppose a personhood amendment in Wisconsin – seems to be warming up to the idea of personhood! Forsythe recently penned a column in the Washington Times entitled “Saving Personhood” in which he argues that “recognition of the personhood of the unborn child is a movement as old as English common law.” According to Forsythe, “[s]tate protection of the unborn child as a person is no longer a novel thing. It grows year by year, state by state, and the public supports it.” Click here to read the full column.
