So, I'm a Coloradan, and this amendment personally angers and concerns me. Check it out.

Well, it also gives me a chuckle... if you look at this site...

So, I don't know who else out there lives in Colorado... but this amendment is really alarming. I hope that even the pro-lifers here realize what a folly this amendment is.

I'm totally irritated by this too. The local pro-lifers come to CSU quite often and distribute pamphlets with images of aborted babies to scare students. I usually go out of my way to avoid disagreeing with others opinions but I feel like this is a serious step back for women. I dislike abortion too, but I wouldn't take that right away from rape and incest victims. Instead of pro-life or pro-choice, I would like to see a pro-prevention group who supported free birth control distribution. If more young women had confidential access to birth control, there would be a lot less abortion.
