California Republican Assembly (San Diego)

The California Human Rights Amendment

WHEREAS, the right to life is the paramount and most fundamental right of a person;

WHEREAS, modern medical science clearly and overwhelmingly supports "personhood", the fact that the life of every human being begins at the beginning of his/her biological development as a human organism.

WHEREAS, personhood removes the politically charged rhetoric of the "life" debate and replaces it with the common sense scientific principle that life begins at each human being’s development as a human organism.

WHEREAS, personhood is unlike other legislation in that it guarantees the right to life of ALL people from the moment of procreation until death.

WHEREAS, all human beings deserve to be protected by love and by law because personhood is a human right.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the California Republican Assembly endorses and supports the petition gathering efforts and campaign to pass the California Equal Rights Amendment. — March 8, 2010
