Welcome to the Personhood Movement

So, what exactly is personhood?

Personhood is simply the right to have rights. It's the basic acknowledgment that all human beings are, well...human! This humanness forms the foundation of our rights—not rights granted by government, but rights bestowed by God, who creates us in His image. Our race, sex, socioeconomic status, developmental stage, level of dependency, physical and mental capacity, medical prognosis, manner of conception, contribution to society, and wantedness do not change our humanness. They do not make us more or less valuable, equal, or deserving of protection. Pretty simple, right?

And what is the personhood movement?

The personhood movement is a diverse, growing community of individuals and organizations who stand on the common sense principle of personhood; who seek to restore the fundamental right to life for all humans through education, culture shifting, and practical politics. From the activist on the ground to the lobbyist down the hall, personhood unites people towards a common goal: To defend against current and future threats to human life and human dignity and apply a biblical worldview in doing so. In other words, putting our faith into action!

Positioned for the 21st century

Personhood Alliance, the organizing entity of the personhood movement, has over 25 affiliate organizations in 13 states that actively address America's most challenging issues. Many well-known pro-life leaders are advocates of personhood as well. This is because personhood is consistent. It's where each of these challenging issues meet, and it's how the pro-life movement can and will be victorious in the 21st century.

Empowering the grassroots

National Personhood Alliance Education, the educational arm of Personhood Alliance, will be launching a nationwide program to equip people to stand for life in their local communities and shape broader conversations on human life and human dignity. It's abundantly clear that Christians must be prepared to stand on solid ground as America faces increasingly complex challenges to God’s design for life, marriage, family, sexuality, and gender. This program will help us do that. Stay tuned for updates!
