Scare tactics much?
Jesus, Mary and/or Joseph. This is absolute INSANITY:
Personhood Colorado is a radical right-wing anti-choice organization supporting Amendment 62 on the ballot this November, which if passed, would define a fertilized egg as a “person,” thus essentially outlawing abortion in the state. Personhood CO has put out some disturbing ads in support of the amendment, particularly one radio ad likening abortion to slavery.
Amendment 62 would ban all abortions, without exceptions for rape, incest or to save a mother’s life. It also would ban stem cell research and birth control other than ‘barrier methods.’” Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards said the amendment “reaches into birth control, it reaches into fertility treatments. The legal turmoil this could create is so immense. I think that’s just the purpose of this amendment…to go far beyond choice; it’s to take away women’s right to family planning.”
Check out this ad. You’d think the end of days was nigh. Obama is the Angel of Death! EVERYBODY PICNICK!!!!11
If you click this link, you can read about Alan Keyes’s involvement in this Personhood CO fuckery, including an ad featuring a Generic Black-Sounding Person likening abortion to SLAVERY, and talking about “pre-born babies.” What the hell is a pre-born baby?!
By the way, why the hell would anyone listen to Alan “Obama is a Kenyan” Keyes? Seriously?
My brain hurts.
