GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. -- "We believe that abortion is basically the killing of an innocent human being. Whether we do it once, twice or three times, this is a duty for us to keep going and try to protect those babies," Personhood USA Director, Gualberto Garcia Jones.

The group says there are enough abortions preformed in Colorado every year to fill the Pepsi Center.
"We know that there are about 16 thousand surgical abortions every year in Colorado. Over 95% of them are done for birth control purposes," Garcia Jones said.
The amendment would ban all legal forms of abortion, even for victims or rape, incest or life endangerment.
"I think most people would agree that it's ok to control birth but killing the child is probably not a good way to control birth. The amendment just prohibits the intentional killing of a person," Garcia Jones said.

The people's take on the proposal has the potential to impact more then next year's ballot.
"I think this is not only going to be relevant ballot initiative here in Colorado, its going to be valid when people cast their ballot for president," Colorado Democrat Party Communications Specialist, Matt Inzeo said.
