The American Life League said it is "eager" to support the measure (HB1), authored by State Rep. Bobby Franklin. "Establishing personhood for the preborn child is the most fundamental step in reversing the decriminalization of abortion, which was established nationwide through the deadly Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions of 1973," said ALL President Judie Brown in a press release. "Thousands of children are literally dying every day in this country from surgical abortion. It is crucial to champion proposals that will help to bring this tragedy to an end," Brown said. "The people of Georgia need our support as they work together on this initiative that has the potential to save an untold number of lives," she added. A rally is planned for Tuesday morning on the steps of the Georgia state capitol featuring Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Sandra Cano, "Doe" of Doe v. Bolton . "Just as we did with pro-life efforts in South Dakota and Michigan last year, American Life League will do all in our power to help this proposal succeed," said Brown. "We encourage pro-lifers across the nation to support legislation that protects human life from the beginning by establishing personhood for the preborn child. This is truly the only way we will see an end to the violent act of abortion in America," she said.
