Colorado high court approved ballot initiative redefining 'person'

On November 13, 2007, the Colorado Supreme Court approved the language of an anti-abortion group's proposed ballot initiative that would amend the Colorado constitution to define a fertilized egg as a "person" entitled to "inalienable rights, equality of justice, and due process of law" under the state constitution. The initiative later failed in 2008, and a similar ballot initiative also failed in 2010.
