Historic Campaign Web Portal Launched for Colorado Personhood Amendment
MEDIA ADVISORY, July 2 /Christian Newswire/ — Colorado’s Amendment 62 personhood campaign is set to launch a remarkable Internet tool, MyCampaignTracker.org, on July 4th, 2010. The Tracker will help our state secure recognition of the right to life acknowledged by America’s Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life…”
“We have human rights because we are made in our Creator’s image and likeness,” said amendment co-sponsor Leslie Hanks, “and therefore we have a moral obligation to protect and love our children, born and preborn.”
MyCampaignTracker.org is designed to encourage the grassroots personhood movement in Colorado to reach local communities across our state with our campaign message of “Persons not Property,” through November’s election.
The innovative MyCampaignTracker.org answers the question: “What can I do to help?” Pro-life Coloradans select a campaign activity, follow simple instructions, and make their campaign efforts visible to other Amendment 62 supporters. Supporters can actually watch their efforts combine into a greater whole to make a difference on behalf of preborn babies in Colorado.
Colorado’s Personhood Amendment has boasted one of the largest volunteer signature campaigns in state history, resulting in one of the largest pro-life grassroots organizations Colorado has ever seen. In March, volunteers surprised naysayers by collecting 46,671 signatures, when only just over 15,000 were required. Colorado personhood volunteers are eager to begin using MyCampaignTracker.org.
“Personhood is a movement of average people, with average resources, fighting an enormous battle against the killing of human persons,” stated Keith Mason, co-founder of Personhood USA. “We have seen these people, many of whom had never volunteered for a pro-life cause before, band together with God’s help to post amazing victories in putting Personhood on the ballot. Now, with MyCampaignTracker.org, we have a phenomenal resource that can help us win in November.”
Amendment 62, co-sponsored by Colorado Right To Life and Personhood Colorado, states: “Person defined. As used in sections 3, 6, and 25 of Article II of the state constitution, the term ‘person’ shall apply to every human being from the beginning of the biological development of that human being.”
