Speaker of the House, Bob Bergren has lent his support to the group combating the CI-102 Initiative by holding a sign reading “Don't Sign Away Your Right to Privacy” at one of their rallies that they could use for campaigning against the CI-102 initiative. I am a little unclear how the passage of CI-102 will sign away the Bob’s right to privacy but I am glad he is at least out there doing something to advance his senate campaign. http://www.flickr.com/photos/no_on_ci102/page2/
This constitutional amendment, which is commonly referred to as the personhood amendment defines a “person” to be every human being regardless of age which would be interpreted by the anti-abortion groups as beginning at conception. The following is the initiatives ballot language
BALLOT LANGUAGE - CONSTITUTIONAL INITIATIVE 102See the full text here; http://sos.mt.gov/elections/archives/2010s/2010/initiatives/CI-102.asp
A CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT PROPOSED BY INITIATIVE PETITION.
The due process section of the Montana Constitution provides that no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. CI-102 amends the due process section of the Montana Constitution to define “person” as used in that section to include every human being regardless of age, health, function, physical or mental dependency, or method of reproduction, from the beginning of the biological development of that human being. It directs the legislature to implement this definition of person by appropriate legislation.
[ ] FOR amending the Montana Constitution’s due process section to define “person” to include every human being from the beginning of the human being’s biological development.
[ ] AGAINST amending the Montana Constitution’s due process section to define “person” to include every human being from the beginning of the human being’s biological development'
Considering that absolutely no one has seen Bob in Havre in months it is good to know that he is actually still around and trying to line up some support from the pro-abortion folks to claim the Senate seat in his race against Rowlie Hutton. Where have you been Bob?
