Anti-Abortion Initiatives Fail in Two States

Voters in Colorado and South Dakota failed to pass two anti-abortion initiatives, MSNBC reports.

As CT previously reported, Colorado's amendment 48 would have amended the state constitution to define "person" as "any human being from the moment of fertilization."

South Dakota's initiated Measure 11 would have barred abortion, except if the mother's life is at risk, and in cases of rape or incest. A 2006 abortion ban also failed.
