(Worthy News) - A proposal to ban abortions at 22 weeks in Colorado moved closer to being on next year’s ballot on Wednesday.
The state’s title board, made up of representatives of the Secretary of State’s Office, the state Attorney General’s Office and the Legislature’s legal office, agreed the measure dealt with only one issue as required by state law and approved preliminary wording for the ballot. However, anyone who disagrees with the decision can appeal to the board within the next week and possibly to the state Supreme Court after that.
Proponents won’t be cleared to collect signatures until those legal options are exhausted. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
