Life Links 7/3/09

Prolifers in Colorado will again attempt to place a personhood amendment into their state's constitution. I think their amendment language is craftier than their last attempt.
The proposed language for the Colorado Personhood Constitutional Amendment Initiative reads as follows: "Section 1. Article II of the constitution of the state of Colorado is amended by the addition of a new section to read: 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."
So in order for abortion proponents to oppose this legislation, they must admit that the biological development of a human being begins before birth.

Well, I figured Doug Kmiec's political shifting in the wind likely had something to do with him getting something in return. But the Ambassadorship to Malta?

Here's an interesting post by Lily Armstrong, a 13-year-old pro-choicer who went "undercover" to a prolife youth event put on by the group Survivors LA. It's fascinating to see how she views prolifers (she seems to think she needed to dress a certain way to appear to be a conservative Christian) and how she makes numerous assertions without any evidence (pictures of aborted children are "not legitimate," thinks 14-year-old girls die from back-alley abortions because of parental notification legislation, restrictions on abortion have a huge negative impact on teens, etc.). She also can't see why teens would "side" with the unborn over their 16-year-olds peers who want to have abortions.
