Personhood Effort Lauches in Nevada

"A longtime conservative activist announced Wednesday he is launching a petition drive to overturn the state's abortion rights law and prevent government from trying to end the lives of elderly people.

Richard Ziser said his proposed Personhood Constitutional Amendment is designed to ensure that no human being is deprived of "life, liberty or property" from the moment of biological development to the natural end of his life.

The petition, if it secures the required number of signatures of registered voters, would appear on the 2010 and 2012 statewide election ballots." Las Vegas Review-Journal 10/22/09
