My local liberal news network here in San Diego profiled the following pro-life Colorado as "extreme" and they didn't waste a second connecting it to the tea party movement:
The ad is part of a campaign for Amendment 62 in Colorado or the "Personhood" amendment on the ballot in Colorado on November 2. Wikipedia:
A Colorado Fetal Personhood, Amendment 62 will appear on the 2010 state ballot in Colorado as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure marks the second time Colorado voters have seen an abortion-related measure on the statewide ballot. Amendment 48 appeared on the November 2008 statewide ballot in Colorado, where it was decisively defeated. On March 26, 2010 the Colorado Secretary of State certified the proposed amendment after determining that supporters had collected a total of 95,884 valid signatures, surpassing the minimum requirement of 76,047 signatures.
Section 32. Person defined. As used in sections 3, 6, and 25 of Article II of the state constitution, the term "person" shall apply to every human being from the beginning of the biological development of that human being.
What are your thoughts on this? I think Colorado voters have every right to amend their state Constitution in this manner and potentially spark a Supreme Court case.
The issue of abortion goes far beyond "grim reaper Obama," but it is telling just how pro-abortion Obama is. As a state senator in Illinois, Obama stood by abortion to the point of infanticide which truly shows his moral fortitude. It wasn't above his pay grade to do so.
On the other hand, I don't agree with the co-opting of the tea party movement. Abortion, in many cases, is an abomination - especially the multi-billion dollar industry surrounding it and if/when taxpayer dollars support the procedure - but the tea party movement is a broad coalition built upon the foundation of fiscal issues and perhaps the only thing that can save this nation, fiscally.
