Wilberforce Descendant Endorses Colorado Human Life Amendment

by Staff
April 16, 2008

DENVER, (christiansunite.com) -- Colorado for Equal Rights campaign has picked up the endorsement of the great great grandson of William Wilberforce, Father Gerard Wilberforce.

The Colorado For Equal Rights Campaign Director, Keith Mason, spoke with Fr. Gerard Wilberforce last week, explaining that "We are going to keep fighting until we protect all of these little ones."

In answer to Mason's comments, Fr. Wilberforce replied "Yes, that is just the way William Wilberforce would have done it."

Wilberforce has told campaign officials that he would be willing to help out the campaign, and he sent this statement to all of the volunteers working on the campaign:

"Two hundred years ago William Wilberforce campaigned on behalf of slaves who were not treated as human beings. Today society does not treat the beginnings of human life as persons who demand our respect. Abortion is widespread because people do not consider the unborn to be worthy of legal protection."

He continued, "Those who are working for the rights of the unborn could therefore look to the example of the abolitionists and take heart. It may not come immediately but good people will eventually change the law. People will then look back and ask how it was that abortions were ever committed. in the same way we look back in horror at the evils of slavery. God bless all of you who work for no reward only to see justice prevail for those last able to defend themselves." -Gerard Wilberforce, great great grandson of William Wilberforce.

William Wilberforce was an evangelical Christian who headed the British Parliamentary campaign against the British slave trade, and was largely responsible for abolishing the British slave trade.

"As we are in our final weeks of getting signatures, Fr. Wilberforce's encouragement is an exciting jolt that will encourage our volunteers as they work to put personhood on the ballot," said Kristi Burton, Spokesperson for Colorado For Equal Rights.

She continued "I am so thankful for Father Gerard Wilberforce's support. He serves as an inspiration to all of us, just as his great great grandfather did."
