The 14th Amendment to the US Constitution says, ..."nor shall any State deprive any 'person' of life"... Senator Roger Wicker (R) MS in past years introduced a bill which defines 'person' as beginning at fertilization. Senator Risch was a cosponsor and Senator Crapo was 'not' a cosponsor. Any politician who is really interested in stopping the holocaust of preborn baby murder will sponsor this kind of bill.
In past years in the House, Paul Broun (R) GA, and Duncan Hunter (R) CA introduced similar bills. Duncan Hunter's bill, H.R. 374, had many cosponsors, one from Idaho, Raul Labrador. Congressman Fulcher seems to be open to personhood at fertilization and should be a sponsor. We hope he accepts the responsibility.
Duncan Hunter's (Duncan is not in Congress now) bill needed to be discarded because it said, "no prosecution of any woman for the death of her unborn child." States have the right and duty to prosecute murder. I asked Congressman Labrador to stop being a cosponsor when he was in Congress, but he wanted to go along with the compromised position of allowing women to escape murder charges, while thinking we should only prosecute baby murder doctors.
Congressman Mike Simpson has not sponsored any of these bills. His website says nothing about personhood at fertilization.
None of Idaho's Democrat candidates are interested in declaring personhood for the preborn. Most of them take campaign donations from preborn baby murder groups like Planned Parenthood.
Senator Risch of Idaho can now show how pro-life he really is. He is on record as saying "abortion is a state issue" and "the woman should not be punished for having an abortion." Mr Risch in years past cosponsored Senator Wicker's bill to establish personhood at fertilization. Senator Crapo's website indicates nothing regarding legal personhood of the preborn baby.
I am on record as saying that, "abortion is murder and everyone connected with the murder of a pre-born baby should be charged with murder, or assesory to murder, including the person who drives the woman to the baby murder center."
Very few members of the Idaho Legislature are willing to introduce personhood legislation as of this date (2021). Those who are willing to sponsor legislation get rejected by leadership. The reason for this, Idaho Right to Life, and Idaho Chooses Life, believe that personhood will be struck down by Federal courts. This may are right, but nevertheless we must introduce personhood legislation to educate the public that 'abortion is murder' and that Idaho can ignore Roe v. Wade and stop the murders. Any Governor could stop these baby murders because no legislative body has established personhood. Babies are presently murdered, even in the birth canal, because of the lack of courage by the pro-life community to even say that 'abortion is murder.'
Personhood at fertilization bills should be introduced in the Idaho Legislature and voted on in both chambers for accountability reasons. Almost all legislation should be voted on for accountability, but most legislators do not want public accountability.
Past Governor Otter did not say 'abortion as murder' or seek personhood legislation as indicated by his answers to Operation Vote Smart, http://votesmart.org/candidate/political-courage-test/1679/butch-otter/#.US_VcFe858MG
Governor Little said in a forum while running for State Senate "personhood begins at conception, and I will do nothing about it" meaning legislatively.
