Amendment 62 Election Results Analysis

Conventional Wisdom Busted as 30% Oppose ALL Abortion: Conventional wisdom claimed that only 15% of voters in America will support a 100% abortion ban (which Personhood requires, even in saving the mother's life when the need is not to "terminate" but to deliver the baby). CRTL is proving that all the Gallup polls and claims of politicians vastly underestimate how many people are willing to protect every innocent child without exception.

Personhood Vote Grows from 2008 to 2010: The YES vote on Personhood grew to narrow our loss from a 3-to-1 defeat in 2008 to a 2-to-1 defeat in 2010 with now 30% voting YES on a 100% abortion ban and personhood. That encourages us!

Gains Despite Dem Turnout: Significant personhood gains were made even in a heavily Democratic year. "Turnout in Colorado actually swung from +1 GOP in 2008 to +5 Democratic in 2010, a 6-point move," reported The Weekly Standard. So even with a much more hostile electorate (Democrats trend "pro-choice"), personhood gained tens of thousands of additional votes when Colorado's massive grassroots campaign put pro-life educational materials into the hands of hundreds of thousands of voters. For we can reach the hearts and minds of our fellow human beings with the power and simplicity of the personhood message that from their biological beginning every person has the God-given right to life.

Gains Despite Pro-life Opposition: The triumvirate of pro-life opposition to fighting for personhood in Colorado comes from Focus on the Family, "National" Right To Life, and the Roman Catholic Archbishops. These groups are working to kill personhood bills and oppose personhood amendments in states across America (just a couple 2011 examples: Louisiana in 2011, Mississippi). The truth eventually wins, regardless of which leaders or groups oppose it. Yet in Colorado, we might win sooner if only these "pro-family" organizations will stop opposing the effort to compel the government to enforce each child's right to life, and actually begin advocating for enforcement of the God-given right to life, something that all of these groups currently refuse to do. The pro-life industry opposes personhood based on:
- long-answered objections and worn-out cliches, and based on
- a self-defeating insistence on waiting till the U.S. Supreme Court is ready (which history shows could take centuries)
- a lack of courage and willingness to educate the leaders and the people on the God-given right to life of every child.
Instead, the pro-life industry has raised hundreds of millions of dollars promoting child-killing regulations while supporting politicians who have exceptions (meaning that they oppose the dismembering of only some children). For these reasons, Colorado RTL is not affiliated with "National" but with "American" Right To Life, the pro-personhood national organization.

The Denver Post's 3-to-1 Headline is Wrong; Should be 2-to 1: The personhood loss in 2008 was closer to 3-to-1. But the increase in the personhood Yes votes in 2010 closed the gap to close to a 2-to-1 ratio. Yet Electa Draper and the Denver Post have refused to correct the following false headline they ran:

40-Year Education in 50 Minutes...

Watch the groundbreaking Focus on the Strategy video filmed at Colorado RTL's historic Forty Years in the Wilderness event in the Supreme Court chambers in the capitol. Focus on the Strategy has cameo appearances from CRTL friends including Notre Dame law professor Charles Rice, Ambassador Alan Keyes, Life Dynamic's Mark Crutcher, American Life League president Judie Brown, and founding board member of CRTL and a few years later, of National RTL, John Archibold.

And hear also a Focus on the Family staff member, Salem radio host Hugh Hewitt, LifeNews publisher Steve Ertelt, talk host Laura Ingraham and Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, and finally, Dr. James Dobson, all caught revealing the most shocking truths.

Focus on the Strategy II: This documentary helped launch the modern personhood movement...

This video, Focus on the Strategy II, is produced by American RTL.

“Awesome! Six hundred thumbs up!” Focus on the Strategy II was filmed before a live audience of 300 Christian activists in the Supreme Court chambers of the Colorado State Capitol building during an event marking to the very day the 40th anniversary of America’s first law "legalizing" abortion for rape and incest and health.

Pam Tebow Endorses CRTL Personhood Amendment!

“A child’s right to life begins at conception, not at birth. From conception, all children are people, made in the image and likeness of God. Thus, I support the Personhood amendment and appeal to Colorado voters to vote 'yes' on amendment 62!” -Pam Tebo
