Personhood Conference

I wrote up my experience at the personhood conference for RH Reality Check. You should go over and check it out.

The Personhood Conference, organized by the American Life League, enlisted speakers from a variety of segments of the pro-life movement, including a rising star, Kristi Burton. Burton is a 21-year-old woman who spearheaded the campaign for a state constitutional amendment in Colorado that sought to define life as beginning at fertilization. Burton says the Colorado personhood movement projects a "positive message," unites pro-lifers, and doesn't personally attack pro-choice activists.

Although Burton may say she leads a new way, the overall message of the conference was conflicted. She said she promotes a positive message, but two of the other speakers at the conference, Lila Rose and Alan Keyes, both presented very traditional messages from the pro-life movement.
