Constitutional Amendment to Article I, Relating to the Definition of "Person"


Be it resolved by the people of the State of Missouri that the Constitution be amended:

One new section is adopted to be known as section 35 of Article I, (or if section 35 of Article I already exists, then this proposal shall add a new section to Article I in the next available numeric order), to read as follows:

Section 35. Person defined.  As used in sections 2, 10, and 14 of Article I of the state constitution, the term “person” shall apply to every human being from the beginning of the biological development of that human being.
