If you believe that “human life has value,” the only moral choice is to vote against Amendment 48.
Ari Armstrong and Diana Hsieh
Amendment 48, if fully implemented, would outlaw all or nearly all abortions involving concerns of health, and definitely all abortions for rape, incest, and other reasons.
Amendment 48 would ban all abortion, except perhaps in cases of extreme risk to the mother’s life. As a result, the measure would cause permanent injury or death to some at-risk women. It would also force a woman to bring any pregnancy to term, regardless of her judgment about her best course in life.
Amendment 48 would require dramatic changes to the treatment of fertilized eggs in laboratory settings, including fertility clinics and research facilities. Such changes further illustrate the harm Amendment 48 would inflict on real people as well as the absurdities that arise from granting legal rights to fertilized eggs.
The most obvious and severe effect of Amendment 48 would be a total or near-total ban on abortion.
Amendment 48 seeks to define a fertilized egg as a person with full legal rights in Colorado’s constitution.
