Human Life Amendment Signatures Certified – Historic Amendment Officially on November's Ballot

Denver, Colorado – May 29, 2008 – For the first time in US history, the issue of personhood will be decided in the public forum by a constitutional amendment. Colorado for Equal Rights has been notified by the Colorado Secretary of State's Office that enough valid signatures were submitted to put the Every Human is a Person amendment on the November 2008 ballot. The Secretary of State's Office's random sampling indicated that there were 103,377 valid signatures, surpassing the 76,047 valid signatures that were required.

"The people of Colorado have spoken, the Secretary of State's Office has certified our signatures, and our equal rights amendment will be on November's ballot," stated Kristi Burton, initiative sponsor. "All humans should be protected by love and by law, and this amendment is a historic effort to ensure equal rights for every person."


Colorado for Equal Rights has demonstrated an unparalleled grassroots effort thus far, with likely more volunteer circulators than any other ballot initiative in the State's history. The grassroots initiative had over 1,300 volunteer petition circulators.

"We at Colorado for Equal Rights are incredibly thankful for our many volunteers who worked so hard for each signature we delivered to the Secretary of State's Office and the churches who stood behind us and supported us," Burton continued. "This victory is the voice of the people and all credit goes our Creator"

Colorado for Equal Rights is a statewide grassroots organization of concerned citizens who value human life. Colorado for Equal Rights is sponsoring the Human Life Amendment to the Colorado constitution, stating "(t)he term 'Person' or 'Persons' shall include any human from the time of fertilization."

Congratulations. :) It's a big achievement. Can't deny that, even if I disagree with the movement, I suppose!

Unborn Personhood on Colorado Ballot
American RTL Elated at Historic Development

DENVER, May 29 -- "For the first time in forty years of 'legalized' child killing, pro-lifers have moved an entire state to consider the God-given right to life of the unborn," said Brian Rohrbough, president of American RTL. "We thank sponsor Kristi Burton of Colorado for Equal Rights, the 500 participating churches, and Colorado RTL for getting personhood on the November ballot."

Today the Colorado Secretary of State's office validated 103,000 signatures on human life petitions, 27,000 more than required to force a statewide vote. If passed, the Colorado constitution would define 'person' as "any human being from the moment of fertilization."

"Abortion is wrong because it's a baby; it's always wrong to intentionally kill a baby," said Rohrbough, "even when its father is a criminal, as with incest."

American RTL has launched its Colorado personhood campaign with a rebuttal to the so-called 'hard cases' of abortion for incest.

"The abortion clinic covers up the crime of incest, and typically sends the victim back home to her rapist," the group's website states. "Even worse, they often send her home with her rapist, the criminal who brought her to the clinic."

"There are no 'hard cases'," said Steve Curtis, the group's vice president and former chair of the Colorado Republican Party. "Abortion for incest emboldens a criminal to rape his young relative, helps him escape being caught, tempts him to repeat his crime, and is not compassionate because it kills a baby and increases the woman's suffering." Rohrbough added, "Personhood for the unborn helps people understand there are no hard cases when deciding to protect a baby; you don't kill the baby because her father is a criminal."

"Abortion clinics nationwide refuse to comply with mandatory reporting laws for suspected child rape," said Jo Scott, director of Pro-Life Colorado. "We brought audio taped evidence provided by Life Dynamics of that failure to the Colorado attorney general's office, and they choose to look the other way; personhood for the unborn will reduce crimes against women and children."

"American RTL applauds the dozens of Colorado politicians and candidates who have publicly endorsed the personhood amendment," says AmericanRTL.org, "and urges all Christians, pro-life leaders and organizations to support personhood as the only foundation on which to reverse the de-criminalization of killing unborn children."

It's amazing what a small church can accomplish. :)

This is really exciting.... especially because so many TOL'ers are an intricate part of this effort. :BRAVO:

Awesome.

As a sidenote, is there anything Colorado Christians are doing to prevent the latest homosexual assault on Christians, Constitutional rights, and society in general? You know, the bill that's already passed through the Colorado House and Senate.

That was the subject of last weeks sermon. (although I was at my dad's house watching the Indy 500 with him so I missed it). My daughter thought it was very interesting.

Maybe we should start a thread about it?
 
Just another back door attempt by religious folk to overturn Roe V Wade. I find it quite amusing how religious folk will use any sneaky tactic they can muster, other than debating the issue.

I've read about 5 of this monkey's 10 posts and I gotta say: I've got a new favorite idiot on TOL. Punisher is off the hook....for now.

His first post was a good one. :D
This is disgusting! I agree that people like this deserve the death penalty. I personally know of a young lady who was molested by a family member(s) when she was young. Poor girl can't have kids now, and she wants one so bad. She is such a sweet young lady, in spite of what she's been through. Molesters are the lowest of the low, and I hope he gets beat down every day for the rest of his life. Taking his life would be almost too easy.

The sentiment is nice but the reliance on what "the people" say is deplorable.
