Miscellaneous Information:

National Personhood Alliance (NPA) is a confederation of organizations and pro-life leaders who believe that the strategy of pursuing personhood is essential to protecting all innocent human life in the 21st century. We believe that only by God's mercy, grace and power will we see protections established for the most vulnerable in our midst. We therefore, affirm and adhere to the following set of principles:

FAITH-BASED

WHEREAS, National Personhood Alliance (NPA) is a Christ-centered, biblically directed organization dedicated to the non-violent advancement of the recognition and protection of the God-given, inalienable right to life of all innocent human beings as legal persons at every stage of their biological development, and;

WHEREAS, without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6),

THEREFORE, NPA declares that in God do we trust, and;

BIBLICAL PERSONHOOD

WHEREAS, the Bible affirms the personhood, sanctity, dignity and value of all humankind from the moment of our individual creation, as evidenced by the doctrine of Imago Dei through the marital union of a man and woman (Gen 1:26-28) [added by Molly and amended by Dan], the incarnation of Christ (Luke 1-2), and the sacrifice of Christ to atone for the sins of humanity and restore fellowship between man and God (Rom. 5:12-21);

THEREFORE, NPA affirms that we will uphold the biblical doctrine of the sanctity of life as the basic[or primary as opposed to exclusive] objective of our organizational goals and efforts, and thereby declare our essential unity; in areas of difference we declare liberty of conscience before God; and in all things—grace, and;[suggested by Guabe]

EDUCATION

WHEREAS, two thousand years of Church history testify to the positive impact of this doctrine on the various cultures and nation-states where it has been embraced, and;

WHEREAS, the Church must, by example, be the primary means to form the consciences of nations [Gaube] regarding the moral demands of God;

THEREFORE, NPA will work to assist the Church as it seeks to affirm the personhood of all humankind; and;

LEGISLATION

WHEREAS, our nation’s charter, the Declaration of Independence, states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” and that governments are instituted in order to secure these rights, and; [amended by Steve]

WHEREAS, the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states, “nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the law" ;

THEREFORE the legislative objective of NPA shall be the restoration of the protection of innocent human life and shall not be deemed completed until the personhood of all human beings, born and unborn, is recognized and defended under the law; beginning at the state level and ending as ultimately expressed at a federal level, and;  

POLITICAL ACTION

WHEREAS, all human beings, at any and every stage of life, in any and every state of consciousness or self-awareness, of any and every race, color, ethnicity, level of intelligence, religion, language, gender, character, behavior, physical ability/disability, potential, class, social status and regardless of manner of conception or creation are persons[Steve] of equal and immeasurable worth and of inviolable dignity, and;

WHEREAS they must be recognized and[Steve] treated in a manner commensurate with this moral status, and;

THEREFORE, no political endorsement or legislative effort may identify a class of human life that can be expressly exempted from the equal protection of the law.

UNIFYING PRINCIPLE

WHEREAS, the absolute sanctity of life will be the unifying principle of our alliance, and;

WHEREAS, this confederation should not be owned by a national group, it should be a confederation of independent groups who agree to link arms as equals,

THEREFORE, strength of unity can only be fully realized if we substantively agree on one consistent political endorsement criteria and a unified set of legislative measures that will allow local groups to achieve a national footprint.
