For the third time, anti-choice activists in Colorado have collected enough signatures to put a measure on the ballot to define a fertilized egg as a human being.
It appears that, for the third time, Colorado voters will get to decide whether or not a fertilized egg is imbued with the rights of an American citizen.
Twice before the anti-choice activists of Colorado have gotten this measure on the ballot, and twice before the people of Colorado have rejected it. So why do these activists keep at it?
Because it might work. You see, the first time around only 27% of voters supported the measure. The second time, it was up to 30%. They are banking on the idea that their opponents are secure in their victory- that those who believe that a woman’s body is her own, that calling a cluster of cells a “person” is dangerous- and simply won’t turn out to vote against the measure.
And if those people who voted against the measure don’t turn out to vote?
Colorado becomes a place where a miscarriage can be murder, where taking the pill is a crime, where the rights of a cluster of cells are more important to the state than the rights of living, breathing, viable human beings.
Coloradans, be warned. Do not get comfortable. Your fight is far from over.
