Personhood ad compares fetuses to slaves

DENVER — Backers of Colorado’s personhood amendment are comparing the rights of fetuses to American slaves in a radio ad they plan to air.

Supporters of Amendment 62 unveiled the spot on Monday at a press conference attended by former GOP presidential hopeful Alan Keyes.

The measure would give unborn fetuses human rights in the state constitution, setting up a likely conflict with the U.S. Constitution over a woman’s right to an abortion.

Backers say that 21st century DNA experiments make it imperative to give fetuses human rights.

They’re pushing the issue in 40 states but so far Colorado is the only one where it’s been cleared to appear on the ballot. In 2008, a similar proposal was rejected by 73 percent of Colorado voters.
