Personhood Ballot Signatures

By Diana Hsieh

Signatures turned in for Colorado anti-abortion measure:

The Colorado Personhood Coalition Monday submitted more than 121,000 signatures to the secretary of state to get its anti-abortion measure on the November ballot.

The group, which claims 1,500 volunteers and the engagement of 500 churches in the cause, needs about 86,000 validated signatures to get the measure before voters again. It would be its third attempt since 2008 to amend the state Constitution.
That's likely more than enough signatures to get "personhood" on the ballot in Colorado for 2012... unfortunately. Once again, Ari Armstrong and I plan to update our 2010 paper: The 'Personhood' Movement Is Anti-Life: Why It Matters that Rights Begin at Birth, Not Conception.
