Our View: Vote no on Amendment 67

At Issue: Amendment 67 seeks to define the terms ‘person’ and ‘child’ in the Colorado Criminal Code to include unborn human beings.

Our View: This amendment is wrong for women and wrong for Colorado.

Heather Surovik's story is a sad and tragic tale. When Surovik was 8 1/2 months pregnant and leaving her last prenatal appointment, a drunk driver blew through an intersection and crashed into her car. She woke up in the hospital's intensive care unit to discover her unborn child had not survived the crash.
