Potter: Yes on Amendment 62
October 20, 2010
To the editor:
One issue on the ballot is a matter of life and death.
It is Amendment 62, which states, "The term 'person' shall apply to every human being from the beginning of the biological development of that human being."
The "personhood" of unborn babies makes us obligated to protect them, not kill them.
As an unstated added benefit, it will also protect the young girls and women who suffer psychological and emotional damage as a result of having an abortion.
It will also expand the beautiful possibility of adoption by couples who would like to have children, but are not able.
The passing of Amendment 62 will also end a lucrative industry for the people who perform abortions.
"Follow the money trail" if you want to know the main reason such a horrendous practice has been legalized.
If Colorado takes the lead by passing this amendment, it will have a "follow the leader" effect on other states.
The polls show this amendment has a 50/50 chance of passing. Let's do our part to make it succeed.
It is a matter of life and death, and as voters, we are responsible for the outcome.
