First primary election

In the governor's race, American Right to Life (ARTL) has endorsed Paul Wright, a Tier 1 (personhood now) pro-lifer who, as stated at his campaign website, supports a personhood amendment to the state constitution and who answered yes to all seven questions in ARTL's 2012 Pro-life Candidate Survey.

Personhood is crucial in the battle for the right to life. As Justice Harry Blackmun wrote in Roe v. Wade, "If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment."
