What Do This Year's Election Results Mean for Choice?

Want to know how the results of the mid-terms elections are going to affect choice? Well, there  is some good news and some bad news.

Let’s start with the good news. Colorado voters have rejected a "personhood" initiative for the second time.  The amendment, which would have extended constitutional human rights at "the beginning of the biological development,” failed by a 3 to 1 margin.  RH Realitycheck supplies more information on Amendment 62, along with commentary from NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado.

Unfortunately, the results also signal a tough couple of years ahead for reproductive justice. Visit Max Kamin-Cross' article posted on RHRealitycheck.org for a full round up of what this year's results mean for protecting a woman's right to choose.  With a Congress full of anti-choice extremists, pro-choice supporters will need to be more vigilant, determined, and and active to ensure women have access to a full range reproductive health options.
