Who are our affiliates, and what do they do?
The Personhood Alliance’s affiliates are independent organizations that focus on different areas and are structured in different ways, but all adhere to a universal set of moral principles. Some affiliates are fully staffed right-to-life groups who have turned away from compromised state and national groups. Others focus solely on personhood-legislation and amendment lobbying, or education and outreach, or developing coalitions of pastors to bring personhood into the Church, or all of the above! All affiliates work on some level to support and/or activate our Sanctuaries for Life initiative. We have both Catholic- and evangelical-led affiliates who unite on the biblical principles of personhood in carrying forward their missions.
At a national level, the Personhood Alliance serves as a unifying body that provides legal, educational, and strategic consultation and support to all of its affiliates, their constituents, and the Christian pro-life movement as a whole. The Alliance works to advance personhood in many different and creative ways and on multiple fronts, including abortion, assisted suicide and euthanasia, medical discrimination, unethical advances in science and technology, marriage and family issues, preventing the sexualization of children, and human trafficking.
