ing as follows:

    In the great state of Nevada, the term 'person' applies to every human being.
This Amendment, for the first time, would ensure all people's right to live. Article I Section 8 of the Nevada constitution states, "No person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law." This Amendment codifies the inalienable right to life for everyone, young or old, healthy or ill, conscious or unconscious, born or unborn. It assures protection and dignity to our children, our infirmed, and our seniors.

Said Olaf Vancura, PhD, President of Personhood Nevada, "With slavery, oppressors denied the humanity of African Americans. With abortion, oppressors deny the humanity of our preborn. Sadly, those who profit by killing helpless persons are now attempting to kill this citizen-led initiative by and for the people of Nevada. The people of Nevada have the right to petition and vote on this Amendment."

Added Richard Ziser, Campaign Manager for Personhood Nevada, "The right to live is the fundamental civil right. It is God-given and not government-granted. It is not offered to the elite and denied to the least of these. This Amendment addresses the most important civil right, the right to live, without which all other civil rights are meaningless."
