Ballot Measures

Do voters ever decide on issues related to a woman's right to choose? In many states, the answer is yes. Anti-choice groups put measures on the ballot to advance their agenda.

Colorado Amendment 67
In 2014, Coloradans will once again vote on an anti-choice, "personhood"-like measure that would amend the state's constitution. If it passes, it could pave the way to a ban on abortion, even in cases of rape or incest, and outlaw common forms of birth control. The same groups that pushed the last two anti-choice ballot measures are behind this one, and even though Amendment 67 sounds well-intentioned, their goal to ban abortion hasn't changed.
