Colorado Pro-Life Advocates Launch Ads for Abortion-Personhood Measure

Denver, CO ( — The pro-life advocates who are supporting Amendment 48, the November ballot measure that would define human life beginning at conception, rolled out their final campaign to support the initiative. The Yes on 48 Campaign released their first statewide television and radio ads.

Titled, "Greed," the ads focus on the reasons for the lies and deceit coming from pro-abortion opponents of Amendment 48 and the radical special interest funding these groups are trying to maintain.

The ads began running in television and radio markets across the state today.

"Sadly, the groups opposed to Amendment 48 are lying and deceiving voters in a greedy attempt to hold on to their million dollar businesses. We’ve seen their hysterical scare tactics many times before but this time voters are wise," Kristi Burton, who started the Amendment 48 initiative, told

The ads address the millions of dollars that Boulder-based late-term abortion practitioner Warren Hern has made over the years and why he refuses to acknowledge the truth about when life begins.

The ad campaign also points out the millions of tax dollars that Planned Parenthood, another leading opponent of the amendment, receives from unknowing taxpayers every year.

Instead of acknowledging modern medical science, the special interest groups behind the opposition continue to put out deceptive lies to keep voters in the dark and to keep their million dollar businesses in the black, Burton says.

"The people deserve to know the truth about advances in medical science now proving that every one of us became a person at the very moment of conception. However, voters do not deserve to be lied to and deceived by our opponents who act like they will do and say anything to keep their millions rolling in," Burton concluded.
