Colorado "Personhood" Measure
In 2014, Colorado voters will once again vote on an anti-choice, anti-birth control "personhood" measure. It would amend the state's constitution to change the definition of person and child to include "unborn human beings" under the state's criminal code. This measure would have a far-reaching impact and insert the government, lawyers and the courts into Colorado women's personal lives.
North Dakota "Personhood" Measure
In November, North Dakotans will vote on a personhood amendment that would define life as beginning at conception. Should this measure pass, it would effectively ban abortion in almost all cases, outlaw some of the most common forms of birth control, restrict fertility treatments such as in-vitro fertilization, and forbid stem-cell research. While "personhood" proposals have appeared on the ballot in several states, they have all failed
Tennessee Anti-Choice Constitutional Amendment
Voters in Tennessee will vote on a measure that would repeal a woman’s right to privacy and significantly expand the power of elected officials in the state to restrict abortion rights. If the measure passes, the legislature would have the power to repeal any measure that protects abortion rights. That's not all. If Roe v. Wade were ever overturned, the Tennessee Supreme Court would have no authority to keep abortion legal in the state.
