No Arguments for Amendment 48

By Gina Liggett

The Denver Post wrote an Editorial urging voters to vote thumbs down on Colorado's Amendment 48, the "personhood" amendment that would grant all rights to a fertilized egg.

My letter to the editor in support of their editorial was published in yesterday's printed version of the Denver Post. It reads:

I echo The Denver Post's wise editorial calling Amendment 48 "inane" and "mischievous." Advocates provide no rational argument for it, only Bible quotes. In addition to the countless proper reasons to oppose 48, another one is that it would violate the separation of church and state. Let's make 48 a minor footnote in Colorado history by voting "no."
