Hey All,

What does everyone think of Amendment 48 in Co?

It would ban hormonal birth control and most abortions.

ETA I'm in another state, so I can't vote on the, but I'd be opposed!

Thanks, yeah, it just meant as a silly. I've seen you around the boards Sam and appreciate your perspective. I am very happy the good people of CO knew this would be a very dangerous law.

I always take message like that like I'm a fellow, not a woman because of my name (it does cause some problems at times)

But I'm glad to hear the people of CO used their heads and voted this down.

I think it might have been a joke?

Why do you say that? Do you know that I'm a woman? A mother of 3 dd's and grandmother of 2 granddaughters?

Just thought I'd let you know....with 86% of the votes counted, 73% have voted no and 27% have voted yes. I'm glad that it looks like this amendment will not pass.

Since the Amendment categorizes a "person" from the "time of conception" then *any* female of child bearing ability (menstruating) that is sexually active, is open to scrutiny based on this amendment.
