DENVER, Colo (AP) - An anti-abortion group that sponsored an unsuccessful constitutional amendment in Mississippi says it will try again next year in Colorado, Montana and Oregon.

The Denver Post reports that Personhood USA was unveiling its 2012 campaign Monday. it has campaigned for state constitutional amendments defining life as beginning at
fertilization.

Mississippi voters rejected a personhood amendment this year. It sought to ban abortion, and many physicians said it could have made some birth control illegal.

Personhood amendments have failed twice in Colorado.

    Well as long as people who believe this strongly continue to vote against it, we really don't have anything to worry about. If the movement actually started to gain popularity and it starts losing by small margins...yeah, then we have to get off our butts and start joining the pro-choice movement instead of just voicing our opinions in a comment section.

    Why doesn't this so called humanitarian group look into a solution for all the unwanted children that are abused, tortured, n murdered on a daily basis. In addition educate birth control, n a law to require early abortion for an unwanted fertilized egg.....Which by the way, is NOT a 'person'.......

    If men could get pregnant, abortions would be subsidized by the federal government and the line out the door of the abortionist would stretch around the block.

      It amazes me when so many people try to make such huge decisions for other people.

    If this group would come here for a week, and look around they just might change their mind.
