Anti-abortion personhood amendment won't make Colorado ballot

By Electa Draper and Lynn Bartels
The Denver Post

The proposed anti-abortion measure known as the Personhood Amendment won't be on the ballot, Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler announced Wednesday, but supporters promised to challenge what they call a wrong result.

Gessler said the personhood petition drive fell short of the required number of signatures by 3,859.

Proponents of Initiative 46, which would amend the state Constitution to extend protection of life to "all human beings at any stage of development," have hired election-law specialist Shayne Madsen of the Jackson Kelly law firm to contest the count.

On Edit: And Scott Gessler is a Republican.

2. Yup.

Hell, they're vowing to continue THIS fight.

It's all about making the women's rights groups spend money fighting these guys when they could be using it to provide health care to underprivileged women and girls.

They make me sick.
