DENVER (AP) - Colorado voters have voted twice against ballot measures to ban all abortions.

Abortion-rights advocates in Denver are stepping up a campaign to seek a third defeat for a so-called personhood measure.

Doctors and activists gathered at Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains Friday afternoon the decry Amendment 67.

That’s the ballot measure to include unborn human beings under the definition of “person” and “child” in the Colorado criminal code. Supporters say the amendment is needed to enhance criminal penalties for crimes against pregnant women.

Opponents say the measure would make any abortion a crime. That includes cases of rape, incest and when a mother’s health is at risk.
