Quick Hit: Colorado anti-choicers push for “personhood” amendment

Not a person.
Anti-choice activists in Colorado have apparently submitted 131,245 signatures to the Colorado secretary of state supporting their “personhood” amendment which would define a fertilized egg as a person. Only 76,047 are needed for the measure to be placed on November’s ballot.
The secretary of state has 30 days to review and signatures and place on the ballot, so we need to start taking action in the meantime. Check out NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado for more information about this very real and threatening measure.
