Personhood movement comes to Alabama

Posted: Friday, January 27, 2012 4:53 pm | Updated: 3:38 pm, Tue Jan 31, 2012.

Alabamians may get the chance to decide for themselves the question of when life begins.

State Sen. Phil Williams plans to introduce a bill that would define the term "persons" to include all humans from the moment of fertilization and implantation into the womb. Similar measures have been attempted in other states as part of a "personhood" movement across the country.

    "I don't put people's convenience in birth control ahead of the sanctity of life," said McGill, who added he is against anything that would kill an embryo, whether it has implanted in the wall of the uterus or not.”

    With such hypocrisy, Senator McGill should introduce a Bill that would prevent the “seed” of a man never be allowed to fall to the earth, but every sperm should be used to replenish the earth’s population, as was required in the Old Testament, but since he is playing Politics, he chooses to follow what his Masters, tell him to do; divert the attention of the Voters of his District from the Evil he is performing, as the INDENTURED SLAVE of his Corporate Campaign Contributors.
    "Killing the life once the sperm and the egg have combined in making the womb inhospitable for the attachment, then my belief - it would be my conviction you might say - that that's a form of abortion,"
    That’s as ridiculous as a person “killing” their sperm before it is combined with the egg in the woman’s womb, as “Killing” the Sperm of a man, is as much “killing” a fetus, as those sperm could have produced a human life, if properly implanted in a woman’s womb and fertilized properly, couldn’t they have, Senator McGill?
    “he said. "You're aborting that which man and woman have come together and created, that God giveth the ability to create, along with his help."

    God also gave the man Sperm so he would have the ability to create human Life, where is your integrity on the “Sanctity of Life, since you’re not protecting all of the sperm of men, so they can possibly become a Human Life, Senator McGill?

    When are you going to learn the Republican controlled U. S. Supreme Court made Abortion LEGAL in ALL 50 States, when they adopted the Roe v Wade Decision, January 22, 1973, and surely you aren’t Stupid enough to believe you can introduce a Bill in the Alabama Legislature to overturn the Roe v Wade Decision, if you believe that, you really don’t need to be in the Alabama Legislature, do you Senator McGill?
    BTW, sounds like you aren’t concerned about the Sanctity of Life, only playing Politics, as a person who really believes in the Sanctity of Life, believes in the Sanctity of ALL HUMAN life created by God, don’t they Senator McGill?
