The state of Colorado has been at the center of the abortion war on the pre-born since April 1967, when Dick Lamm's legislation was signed into law by Republican Governor, John Love.
In 2008, we became the first state to carry a citizen's initiative - Amendment 48 to establish the personhood of the pre-born and protect each baby in his or her mommy's womb.
Though the media described our loss as a serious trouncing, since that defeat, over 20 other states are running similar measures - either in their legislatures or put on ballots by citizens tired of waiting for their elected officials to do the right thing.
Not content to take a few years off to lick our wounds, we are back again and in full steam ahead mode.
August 25, we had a press conference where we mailed 1,000 petitions to previous individuals who helped get us on the ballot last time - collecting nearly double the amount necessary.
This week a stellar team of volunteers, including one little pro-life dynamo Emma, ( who takes after her Daddy Keith Mason ) is gathering signatures at a record pace. Emma's charm inspired 100 fair goers to sign up in 1 hour to put our measure on the ballot for 2010. She'll be a tough one to beat!
If you live in Colorado and care enough about the babies to get involved in the battle of our generation,we'd love to see you in Pueblo this weekend. Come down and get your petition, work a few hours and then enjoy the fun, food and music.
Yes we are our brother's keeper!
If you don't live in Colorado but know someone who does, let them know how much they are needed!
(Prov 24:11) Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter.
