In case you missed it don’t forget to read the 6 part series by Ari Armstrong and Diana Hsieh on Amendment 48 which seeks to define a fertilized egg as a person with full legal rights in Colorado’s constitution.

Amendment 48 Is Anti-Life: Why It Matters That a Fertilized Egg Is Not a Person (Part 1 of 6) (September 1, 2008)
Amendment 48 seeks to define a fertilized egg as a person with full legal rights in Colorado’s constitution. If fully implemented, it would profoundly and adversely impact the lives of sexually-active couples, couples seeking children, pregnant women, doctors, and medical researchers, subjecting them to severe legal restrictions, police controls, protracted court battles, and criminal punishments.
Amendment 48 Is Anti-Life: Amendment 48 and Birth Control (Part 2 of 6) (September 2, 2008)
The most obvious and severe effect of Amendment 48 would be a total or near-total ban on abortion. Perhaps more importantly, it would profoundly affect the day-to-day sex lives of couples by restricting birth control.

Amendment 48 Is Anti-Life: Fertility Treatment and Medical Research (Part 3 of 6) (September 3, 2008)
In the name of “respecting life,” the advocates of Amendment 48 would impose a death sentence on the real people whose lives might be saved through such research.

Amendment 48 Is Anti-Life: Amendment 48 and Abortion (Part 4 of 6) (September 4, 2008)
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 Is Anti-Life: Personhood and the Right to Abortion (Part 5 of 6) (September 5, 2008)
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 Is Anti-Life: Morality and Abortion (Part 6 of 6) (September 6, 2008)
Much of the popular opposition to abortion stems from a faulty analysis of the morality of abortion. Contrary to the critics of abortion, the termination of even a healthy pregnancy can be a morally responsible choice.
