Amendment 62, Colorado’s Personhood Amendment, announces its launch today as it prepares to pass Amendment 62 in November’s election.
Amendment 62, cosponsored by Colorado Right to Life and Personhood Colorado, states “ 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.”
Fortified with endorsements from Human Life International, American Life League, Summit Ministries, Pastor Walter Hoye, Lila Rose of Live Action, and many others, Amendment 62 is utilizing its thousands of volunteers to prepare for a win in November.
On July 4th, the Amendment 62 campaign unveiled MyCampaignTracker.org, a website designed to capitalize on the grassroots personhood movement in Colorado, which will be utilized to saturate the state with grassroots activity through November’s election. Completed activities will turn the state of Colorado purple, and the color will indicate the level of grassroots success in the state.
“As we launch the campaign for Amendment 62, mycampaigntracker.org utilizes our strengths by empowering our volunteers. Colorado has never seen such strong grassroots organization, and that is what we believe will bring victory in November,” stated Keith Mason, co-founder of Personhood USA.
MyCampaignTracker.org answers the question: “What can I do to help?” Pro-life Coloradans select a campaign activity, follow simple instructions, and make their campaign efforts visible to other Amendment 62 supporters. Supporters can actually watch their efforts combine into a greater whole to make a difference on behalf of preborn babies in Colorado.
The Tracker will help our state secure recognition of the right to life acknowledged by America’s Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life…”
“Personhood is the core issue of the pro-life movement,” explained amendment co-sponsor Gualberto Garcia-Jones, “The preborn child is a human being, all human beings are persons, and all persons have a right to live from biological beginning to natural death.”
Colorado’s Personhood Amendment has boasted one of the largest volunteer signature campaigns in state history, resulting in one of the largest pro-life grassroots organizations Colorado has ever seen. In March, volunteers surprised naysayers by collecting 46,671 signatures in 15 days, when only just over 15,000 were required.
