Personhood Colorado, aka Colorado for Equal Rights is the brainchild of Kristi Burton, a revolutionary 19 year old woman, whose goal is to see that the Colorado state constitution is amended to include the pre-born from the moment of fertilization as having their “personhood” clearly established, so that they may enjoy equal protection under the law.
Personhood Colorado/Colorado for Equal Rights is sponsoring a proposed constitutional amendment in Colorado that will define when life begins. This amendment will lay the foundation to ensure that every human life—from the moment of conception—is guaranteed protection and equal rights under our laws.
Personhood Colorado/Colorado for Equal Rights was founded with the goal of protecting human life. Every human being deserves equal rights under our laws, regardless of the stage of life he or she is in. Colorado for Equal Rights will stand up for the protection of every innocent human life… from the very beginning until natural death. The term “Person” or “Persons” shall include any human from the time of fertilization.
For the first time in US history, the issue of personhood will be decided in the public forum by a constitutional amendment. Personhood Colorado/Colorado for Equal Rights has been notified by the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office that enough valid signatures were submitted to put the Every Human is a Person amendment on the November 2008 ballot. The Secretary of State’s Office’s random sampling indicated that there were 103,377 valid signatures, surpassing the 76,047 valid signatures that were required.
“The people of Colorado have spoken, the Secretary of State’s Office has certified our signatures, and our equal rights amendment will be on November’s ballot,” stated Kristi Burton, initiative sponsor.
“All humans should be protected by love and by law, and this amendment is a historic effort to ensure equal rights for every person.”
Personhood Colorado/Colorado for Equal Rights has demonstrated an unparalleled grassroots effort thus far, with likely more volunteer circulators than any other ballot initiative in the State’s history. The grassroots initiative had over 1,300 volunteer petition circulators.
“We at Colorado for Equal Rights are incredibly thankful for our many volunteers who worked so hard for each signature we delivered to the Secretary of State’s Office and the churches who stood behind us and supported us,” Burton continued.
“This victory is the voice of the people and all credit goes our Creator”
