"Dan Becker's book is a great blend of prudence, pragmatism and principled politics; it is certain to cause us to rethink prolife strategy in the 21st century." --Dr. Donald Wildmon
Founder and Chairman Emeritus of American Family Association and American Family Radio
"I just got around to reading your book tonight, and I think I won't stop until I am done. It is the finest pro-life work I have read, period." --Gualberto Jones
"The push for personhood across the United States is motivating the prolife movement while also inspiring others to take up the cause. Dan Becker has been out front in leading the personhood charge and his book gives special insight on how we can all work together to make the US a true prolife nation." --Tom McClusky
Senior Vice President
Family Research Council Action
"'Personhood' is at the very heart of the 21st Century Civil Rights Movement. My Uncle Martin once said that to deny a person is " to say that he has no right to existence." Whether it is Dred Scott, Sojourner Truth, 1968 Sanitation Workers, or a baby viewed in a 3D Ultrasound, from conception until natural birth, a person is a human being, entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This right to personhood is a civil right. So, this book is an essential tool for these times." --Dr. Alveda C. King

"All believers in God should insist, without compromise, that the human law must always treat every innocent human being as a person entitled to the right to life. Dan Becker courageously affirms this truth." --Professor Charles Rice Emeritus, Professor of Law, University of Notre Dame
"The field of bio-science brings a host of unforeseen public policy issues that adversely impact our "unalienable right to life." Legal Personhood is at the root of all dialogue and debate. The prolife movement can no longer focus solely on abortion, but must expand to include the new challenges brought on by the emerging technology of the twenty-first century.
I commend the Personhood movement and its political successes as a consistent and promising approach to restoring respect and effective legal protection to all innocent human life from its earliest biological beginning until natural death." --Morton Blackwell, Founder, Leadership Training Institute
"Dan Becker's book provides a much needed challenge to those in the pro-life movement who are content with the status quo; it is a strong reminder that we should never compromise principle when defending what Pope John Paul II described as "the inviolable right of every innocent human being to life." --Robert J. Muise, Senior Trial Counsel, Thomas More Law Center
