This is a basic overview and of The 28th Amendment, just to give people an idea of what our positions are. It is not near complete and more legal but layman language will be used. Notes are added after every * and several links are supplied as references. It is possible that it may be divided into several amendments.

A zygote is formed by the fusion of a LIVING female reproductive cell (ovum) and a LIVING male reproductive cell (spermatozoon). Regardless of the point wherein people personally judge or believe that a human life begins, whilst it is reliant upon and thus a part of a woman’s body, a pre-human being is considered a part of the woman’s sovereign being and cannot be judged of greater value than the woman who carries it. Stem Cells, zygotes, morulas, blastocysts, embryos, and fetuses are not people.

*The Amendment will incorporate sections from:
~Notes and additional information
*Note, The First Amendment to the United States Constitution does not support assemblies and protests that The 28th Amendment makes unlawful and prohibited.
First Amendment: “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Even though this “America was founded as a christian nation” delusion has been debunked, it wouldn’t matter if it were true. It wouldn’t matter if 100% of the “founders” were priests. It would’t matter if god and jesus infested every sentence of our constitution. Society has evolved. The 28th Amendment will clean up the oppression of religion from our government.
The Proven to be Secular, Founding and Early Documents of The United States of America. The Evidence that America’s Government was to be Separated From any Influence of any Religion http://tmblr.co/ZFotutY5YRFE
This section is about putting an end to churches using their charities as cheap religious promoting tools. If a church wants to help people, help them. Don’t exploit downtrodden people for future financial gain. If churches want their charities to double as a promoting institution, taxes will apply. Otherwise, the government would be aiding in the promotion of religion.
This will save the country billions of dollars per year. All money saved will support all the nonreligious organizations that already exist, that perform related functions of such religious organizations. This will allow these secular organizations to expand. All money will be regulated and monitored; while no longer being filtered into religious extremist groups or funding other religious agendas.
Parents and religious organizations can preach the misinformation of Creationism and Intelligent Design on their own time.
A school voucher, also called an education voucher, is a certificate issued by the government, which parents can apply toward tuition at a private school (or, by extension, to reimburse home schooling expenses), rather than at the state school to which their child is assigned.
Unless their extraordinary claims can be supported by extraordinary evidence; I see no reason for us to continue to subsidize their fraud for thousands of more years.
Currently, there are 216 religion-related advocacy groups operating in the nation’s capital.
In the United States, seven state constitutions officially include religious tests that would effectively prevent atheists from holding public office, and in some cases being a juror/witness.
“The liberty we prize is not America’s gift to the world, it is God’s gift to humanity.”
– George W. Bush, State of the Union address, January 28, 2003.
In 1961, the United States Supreme Court explicitly overturned the Maryland provision in the Torcaso v. Watkins decision, holding that laws requiring “a belief in the existence of God” in order to hold public office violated freedom of religion provided for by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.

The People’s Rights Amendment
This section of the Amendment incorporates The People’s Rights Amendment
