Stop Personhood Campaign
Personhood ideology threatens all women and girls by reducing their status to fertilized eggs. The "Stop Personhood" Campaign is mounting a strategic plan to fight the personhood legislative agenda, non-profit organizations, activism, and non-transparent financial backing; and to bring international attention to the negative impact and the long term implications if personhood becomes the law of the land. The first step in joining the Stop Personhood Campaign is to follow us on Twitter: @YStopPersonhood Thank you for your support. @DarwinSelection @Tempibones @CohortFund #fem2 #youngfems #waronwomen #reprorights #reprohealth #reprojustice #womensrights #tlot #p2 #GOP #Occupy #stoppersonhood #personhoodpushers #petzygote

Washington state health officials can’t find cause for increase in anencephaly birth defect  | Stop Personhood Campaign | Scoop.it
Washington state officials aren't sure why more babies are being born with a rare neural tube defect.
Tempibones's insight:

Personhood pushers will force these little ones to be born. Women and their families will endure the maximum amount of suffering, and so will the child.

Texas Legislators File Radical ‘Fetal Heartbeat’ Bill To Ban Abortion After Just Six Weeks

Texas Legislators File Radical ‘Fetal Heartbeat’ Bill To Ban Abortion After Just Six Weeks | Stop Personhood Campaign | Scoop.it
On Thursday, three Texas Republicans filed a measure that would criminalize abortion services after a fetal heartbeat can be detected — which typically occurs around six weeks of pregnancy, before many women even know they’re pregnant.

"It was never about life. It was about a reaction to Feminism." Author of 'Crazy For God' speaks (5:07) on the 'Hypocrisy from Pro-life Lawmakers'. Frank Schaeffer, whose father Frances "gave birth to" the Pro-life movement, has important insight to the actual meaning of the movement, its rhetoric, and how it changed overtime.
