ABSTRACT
The article reports the proposal of five states such as South Dakota, California, Oregon, Montana, and Colorado in making abortion illegal that will be included in the November 2008 state ballots. South Dakota filed a new initiative for 2008 that would like to ban abortion except for rape, incest, and if it poses threat to the pregnant woman's health. Colorado Equal Rights Amendment will add another definition of a person to the constitution which is any human being from the time of fertilization.
