Colorado personhood amendment goes to title board

DENVER — A proposed constitutional amendment that would protect the
rights of embryos is advancing.

On Thursday, the personhood amendment proposal got the approval of
legislative staffers assigned to review and make recommendations on all ballot
measures.

Next it must be reviewed by the state title board, which makes sure that all
voter initiatives only address a single topic.

The proposed amendment says the term "person" would apply to every human
being "from the beginning of the biological development of that human
being."

It’s essentially the same language used in the ballot proposal rejected by
voters last fall. This time, though, there’s a small change designed to protect
persons created through asexual reproduction methods such as
cloning.
