DENVER, Sept. 27, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Colorado Personhood Coalition will hold a press conference on today, just before filing a challenge at the Denver District Court City and County Building.
Press Conference Details:
WHO: Colorado Personhood Coalition and Legal Counsel
WHAT: Court challenge details to put personhood on the ballot

The Colorado Secretary of State announced in August that after rejecting thousands of valid signatures, the Colorado personhood amendment was a few thousand signatures short of qualifying for the ballot.
Upon review of the discarded signatures, the Colorado Personhood Coalition has determined that in many cases, entire petitions were discarded despite valid signatures and valid affidavits. Because of this, the Colorado Personhood Coalition has decided to challenge the decision within the 30 day time period allowed by Colorado law.
The 2012 attempt at Personhood in Colorado includes unprecedented amendment language, aimed at disarming scare tactics and correcting false statements from opposition to the amendment. The amendment text is available at personhoodco.com/amendment-text.
The Colorado Personhood Coalition is a grassroots organization comprised of Colorado citizens who value all human life, from biological beginning to natural death. The Colorado Personhood Coalition has sponsored the Personhood Amendment to the Colorado constitution.
