* 76,000 Required Surpassed by 55,000: It's historic! For the first time in any state, in forty years, Kristi Burton of Colorado for Equal Rights delivered dozens of boxes of notarized signatures to the Colorado Secretary of State to get on the statewide November ballot to protect unborn children! A dozen reporters attending including from Denver's TV stations 4, 7, 9 and 31, and print journalists from the Colorado Statesman, Associated Press, Denver Post, and the Rocky Mountain News.
* Colorado Officials Present: included Scott Renfro, Kevin Lundberg, Kent Lambert and Dave Schultheis, and Ted Harvey circulated a petition himself and turned in dozens of signatures! A number of Planned Parenthood staffers came to the event and clapped with the crowd in hopes of blending in, and when two more showed up a bit late, Bob Enyart said to them, "the Planned Parenthood section is in the back, on the left." Pro-life heroes like Audrey Dobson, Andrea Jaracz, Annie Gillespie, Lolita Hanks, Susan Sutherland, Jennifer Mason, Deborah Burton, Leslie Hanks, and so many more were there to celebrate and commit themselves to educating people about the truth! Mark Hotaling of the Christian Coalition of Colorado, a great, principled Christian ministry, was wonderfully encouraging as were Keith Mason, Cal Zastrow, Mike Burton, and so many others at the Victory Rally and press conference! A general theme was that we have to stop regulating abortion, as powerful pro-life speaker Lori Goebel declared, and stop supporting laws that end with, "and then you can kill the baby," and commit ourselves to upholding the God-given right to life!
