Anti-Choice Agenda Thrives in Hallway of Conservative Conference in Denver

So the excitement in the halls of the Western Conservative Summit over the "personhood" measure did not match the silence on the conference agenda.

You'd expect Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) (pictured above) to join fellow House Republicans in supporting an abortion ban, but his decision to back exceptions for rape and incest, when he ardently opposed such exceptions previously, raises questions for the Congressman.

‘Personhood’ Backers in Colorado Push Ballot Initiative to Define ‘Person and Child’

With several abortion restrictions on hold, anti-choice activists are using their down time to prepare for a new push to grant legal rights to fertilized eggs via a "personhood" measure.

The new measure’s language is more obtuse than the personhood initiatives of 2008 and 2010, enabling law enforcement officials to prosecute people who commit crimes against “unborn human beings.”
