DENVER (AP) _ Gov. Bill Ritter is opposing a first-in-the-nation proposal on Colorado ballots this fall that would define a fertilized egg as a person and potentially outlaw abortion.
Ritter plans a news conference on Tuesday to oppose amendment
48, which would change the state constitution.
The governor has also come out against other ballot measures,
including a ban on affirmative action in state decisions and a ban
on requiring workers to join a union.
