Voters asked to Decide When Life Begins

For the first time ever in the US, a ballot this November will ask voters to decide when life begins. Colorado voters will decide whether to allow The Human Life Amendment to become state law. The ballot initiative, also known as the personhood amendment, would define the words "person" or "persons" in the state constitution to include “any human being from the moment of fertilization." The proposal is funded by Colorado for Equal Rights but does not have the support of the National Right to Life or James Dobson’s Colorado-based Focus on the Family. These groups are more focused a judicial change rather than a legislative strategy.
