But it’s not clear what exactly this year’s so-called “personhood” measure would do if it is approved. Abortion opponents say Amendment 67 would strengthen protections for pregnant women by adding “unborn human beings” to Colorado criminal code.

Although Planned Parenthood officials have denounced the Missouri law as “onerous” and “burdensome” for women, the organization isn’t planning to file a lawsuit before the measure takes effect Friday.
