Georgia Legislature considers Human Life Amendment
Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest Addthis

.- An amendment to the Georgia constitution that would protect life in all forms, from conception to natural death, is now before the state legislature for approval. 

House resolution 536 requires a two-thirds vote of the Georgia House and the state Senate to appear on the popular ballot for the 2008 election.  It has the support of both Democrats and Republicans.

Georgia Representative Martin Scott, the sponsor of the bill, explained: “The Human Life Amendment is the next logical step for defenders of liberty,” said Scott. “With advances in science such as cloning to our society’s movement toward a culture of death including euthanasia and endless abortions, Georgia is the place to enact this policy.”

“Georgia is a pro-life state,” Scott added.  “I predict Georgians will overwhelmingly support this Constitutional protection if given the chance to vote.”

ProlifeUnity.com is organizing a rally in support of the measure.  The rally will take place on January 14, 2008, the opening day of the Georgia legislature.
