By Wide Margin Colorado Voters Reject “Personhood” Amendment

Colorado volunteers worked tirelessly to reject the State’s “Personhood” Amendment. On November 2, Colorado voters went to the polls and rejected Amendment 62, the so called “personhood” amendment which would have given legal rights to fertilized eggs under the Colorado Constitution. According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), Amendment 62 would have applied the term ‘person’ as used in those provisions of the Colorado Constitution relating to inalienable rights, equality of justice and due process of law, to “any human being from the beginning of the biological development of that human being.”

“I applaud the citizens of Colorado for rejecting this ballot measure by a three to one margin,” said Barbara Collura, RESOLVE’s executive director. “This measure would hurt those 1 in 8 couples battling the disease of infertility and seeking treatment.”
