80,000 Signatures Submitted

Amendment Ballot Access Requires 76,000

DENVER, Feb. 12 -- At a personhood amendment press conference Colorado RTL and Personhood Colorado announced that today they would submit 80,000 signatures to the Secretary of State's office. Ballot access requires 76,000 valid signatures and over the next one to four weeks the Secretary's office will compare each signature with the state's voter registration database. If more than 4,000 signatures are invalidated, state law gives the amendment sponsors a 15-day "Curing Period" to educate, to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to collect the signatures needed to fill in the gap. (Of course everyday is a good day to share the Gospel!)

Co-sponsor Leslie Hanks, CRTL's long-time vice president, is team leader for a group that has committed to get 2,000 signatures for the expected cure period. If you'd like the blessing of being on Leslie's team, please join up by calling the CRTL office at 303-753-9394 or emailing her at leslieforlife@gmail.com!

Colorado RTL is the first right-to-life organization in the nation and a proponent of the personhood movement which has seen an explosion of growth and is now operating in forty states. Our co-sponsor, Personhood Colorado, is a grassroots organization of Colorado citizens who value innocent human life from biological beginning to natural death. We have sponsored the Personhood Amendment to the Colorado constitution, which reads: "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."
