Action Alert

Oppose religiously motivated Montana constitutional amendment

Protect Abortion rights

The Montana Legislature is considering an anti-choice bill aimed at undermining abortion rights. Please take a few moments to oppose this bill.

The bill, HB 337, would amend your state Constitution to establish “personhood” at conception. This dubious definition is based on the dogmatic religious belief that ensoulment takes place at conception, conflating a human embryo with an “unborn child.”

The job of elected officials is to enact policies that protect and improve the well-being of their constituents, not to impose their own dogmatic religious beliefs. The only organized opposition to abortion is religious in nature, predicated on this religious concept of “ensoulment,” thereby making reproductive rights a state/church separation matter.

The Montana Senate Judiciary Committee has a scheduled hearing on this proposal tomorrow, Wednesday, March 31, at 8 a.m. local time.
