Thank you to the Blue Book Alternative! Blatant false information in Colorado’s official, though biased, 2010 Blue Book voter guide includes this outright lie from Planned Parenthood and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) that, “Amendment 62 may also limit… treatment for miscarriages,” which is false because in a miscarriage, tragically, the baby has already died. The Blue Book also falsely claims, against all scientific and medical research and common usage of English grammar, that the phrase “the beginning of biological development,” is “a term which is not defined… and is not an accepted medical or scientific term.” Extensive medical and scientific documentation for the beginning of biological development appears at ColoradoRTL.org/beginning.
AMENDMENT 62 TEXT: The 2010 Personhood Amendment adds the following section to the Colorado constitution’s Bill of Rights:
Section 32. Person defined. As used in sections 3, 6, and 25 of Article II of the state constitution, the term “person” shall apply to every human being from the beginning of the biological development of that human being.
