JACKSON, ( -- Personhood Mississippi is holding a press conference to announce the number of signatures collected for the personhood amendment, followed by a victory rally to submit the gathered signatures. With the help of over 2,000 volunteers and nearly 1,000 churches, Personhood Mississippi is expected to present well over the number of 89,285 required by the Secretary of State's Office.

"February 16 will be an historic day for the state of Mississippi," affirmed Personhood Amendment sponsor Les Riley. "The people of Mississippi have made a clear statement with their signatures  it is time that all humans are valued as people, not as property."

Personhood Mississippi encountered a complication when it appeared that the County Circuit Clerk was discounting valid signatures due to time constraints, necessitating a lawsuit to ensure that every voter's signature was certified. The Personhood Amendment signature campaign is awaiting a ruling on the first phase of the legal challenge, yet due to a State of Emergency in Mississippi and time needed to review the case, Personhood Mississippi is allowed to submit the signatures Tuesday, February 16.

Lieutenant Governor Phil Bryant, who assisted the campaign, will be in attendance as Personhood Mississippi submits signatures to the Secretary of State's Office.

Press Conference Details:

WHO: Personhood Mississippi with Lieutenant Governor Phil Bryant
WHAT: Announcement regarding signature count and victory rally
WHERE: 401 Mississippi Street, Jackson, MS
WHEN: Tuesday, February 16, 2010, at 4:00pm

As used in this Article III of the state constitution, "The term 'person' or 'persons' shall include every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning or the functional equivalent thereof."
