Brady Amendment

Colorado's 2014 Brady (personhood) Amendment news

Personhood Vote Grows from 2010 to 2014!

Personhood Vote Grows from 2008, to 2010, to 2014! The YES vote on Personhood grew to narrow our loss from a 27%, 3-to-1 defeat in 2008 (Amendment 48), to a 29% defeat in 2010 (Amendment 62), to now 35% voting YES on the pro-life Brady personhood Amendment 67. So we've narrowed the loss from 3-to-1 to better than 2-to-1. That encourages us!

Join Us: in praying for the wisdom and resources to build on this increase the Lord has given us. Another way of looking at our growth from 2008 to 2010 is that we saw a ten percent increase in those who voted Yes! Please pray with us and work with us now so that we can reach even more people so that together we will protect every child by love and by law.

CRTL's Brady Amendment Talking Points

Brady Amendment Text: "In the interest of the protection of pregnant mothers and their unborn children from criminal offenses and negligent and wrongful acts, the words 'person' and 'child' in the Colorado Criminal Code and the Colorado Wrongful Death Act must include unborn human beings." See also the full text (effective date, etc.) and visit avoiceforbrady.com.

Persons not Property: Please support the abolition of human abortion in every way that God enables you. Petitioning registered voters, Colorado's personhood coalition turned in 140,000 signatures and have gained ballot access for the November 2014 general election! Please educate yourself with these talking points and donate so that we can wage an effective campaign to pass the Brady Amendment 67 so that Colorado can recognize that every human being is a person and that every innocent child deserves protection by love and by law.

Will the Brady Amendment Stop Abortion? Colorado law prohibits the intentional killing of every innocent person. Colorado Revised Statutes C.R.S. 18-3-102 (2013) states:

TITLE 18. CRIMINAL CODE
ARTICLE 3. OFFENSES AGAINST THE PERSON
PART 1. HOMICIDE AND RELATED OFFENSES
18-3-102 (1) A person commits the crime of murder in the first degree if:
(a) After deliberation and with the intent to cause the death of a person other than himself, he causes the death of that person or of another person...


Brady requires that the state "must include unborn human beings" in this statute and in all the “Offenses Against the Person”. The the Brady Amendment 67 makes abortion a criminal offense. C.R.S. 18-3-102 (1) describes first degree murder. Of course Colorado's Criminal Code goes on to provide protection against the killing of innocent persons in other circumstances which, under Brady, would now apply also to "unborn human beings." But what about Roe? See Dred and Roe v. Wade below.

How About HB13-1154? The abortion industry's so-called fetal homicide bill was designed to protect not children but those who charge money to kill unborn children. Planned Parenthood's bill further undermines the child's safety by stating that, "nothing in this act shall be construed to confer personhood, or any rights associated with that status, on a human being at any time prior to live birth..." This is an insult to Brady, to every child, and to God in whose image they are made.

Snowflake girlSnowflake Children: This baby girl was adopted, like all the snowflake kids, as a frozen embryo. A snowflake child is one of the strongest proofs that even the littlest child, a single-celled human, is a person. Little Elisha Lancaster shown here, frozen for years, was fully alive and fully human when she was transfered into her mom Maria's womb. Elisha was not a boy but already a little girl, at the very moment that she came into existence in a laboratory. Then, four years later, this tiny person was adopted, Federal Expressed across the country, and implanted in mom's womb.

Isn’t It Part of the Woman’s Body? Half the time the fetus is a boy. Always the mother is female. Her son’s Y chromosome cannot be part of mom. He’s a genetically distinct individual. And whether it’s a baby boy or girl, the baby is not the woman’s body, but has his or her own body within mom. The unborn baby’s first cry for food is actually a pheromone signal, from one organism to another. A hormone is a chemical signal between organs within an organism, but the baby’s request is a human pheromone. So while still traveling toward the womb, the fetal cry lets mom know the baby’s already hungry!

Would a Mother Be Arrested for Miscarriage? That claim is pure fear mongering. History demonstrates the truth. When the nation recognized abortion as illegal, the authorities never arrested a single doctor or woman for a miscarriage.

Should Eggs Have Rights? Those who kill unborn children try to dehumanize them by referring to the youngest ones as “eggs.” Confusing an egg with an organism is biological and moral ignorance. The Carnegie Institute’s world-renowned Stages of Early Human Development lists terms with “no scientific usefulness” and says that “the term ‘egg’ is best reserved for… the breakfast table.” Immoral terms like gooks and fertilized egg dehumanize other people to make it easier to kill them.

Won’t This Outlaw Contraceptives? No, recognizing personhood has no effect on contraceptives that only prevent fertilization. However, personhood would prohibit any chemical abortifacient that kills the tiniest boys and girls. When the abortion industry says that personhood would outlaw contraceptives, they’re either lying now, or they were lying then, for they’ve spent decades telling women that such chemicals did not kill a living embryo. Women should know whether or not a chemical would abort their children. Personhood Amendment 67 will end these lies.

March with us in the Memorial Day Parade!


Come march with the Brady campaign!

UPDATE: Brady's mom Heather and grandmother Terri carried the a huge banner to lead the way! We had about 50 people marching in campaign t-shirts, and we handed out thousands of Brady postcards to introduce the Brady Amendment 67 to the crowds lining the parade route! We also spoke to a number of politicians who were in attendance. Here's a transcript of what one of our spokespeople said to former champion for life, Mike Coffeman:

Mike, the personhood movement has collected 400,000 signatures of registered Colorado pro-life voters. We're not going away. Brady was a person. Each child is a person. But you have made money your most important issue. Taxes are not more important than standing for the God-given right to life of each innocent child. You've turned against the personhood of the innocent Mike. You're on the wrong side of history.


ARCHIVED INVITATION: Greetings from the Brady Campaign,

We have great news: the Amendment 67 team has been invited to march in the Commerce City Memorial Day Parade on Monday!

Huckabee interviews Heather on the Brady Amendment 67

On the Fox News Channel, Mike Huckabee interviews Heather Surovik about her son Brady who was killed by a drunk driver and about Colorado's Brady Amendment 67 to protect all unborn children by law!




There are laws in various states which will give a penalty to a drunk driver who kills an unborn child, but sadly, all such laws indicate that the child is not a person in that they permit the intentional killing of that boy or girl. Contrariwise, the principled Brady Amendment does not condone the killing of an innocent child.



Please help Colorado RTL educate our state to vote yes to protect all unborn children from violence! Please call to volunteer or click to donate now or call 1-888-888-CRTL!
