Personhood amendment, part deux

Interesting spin:
Colorado voters in 2008 trounced an amendment that would have defined a fertilized human egg as a person, but supporters of the "personhood" battle are angling for a rematch in 2010.

This time, though, they're avoiding the word "fertilization" in the amendment's language, saying that it confused voters, who may have visualized chicken eggs.
Um, yeah, I'm sure that's why it lost. It must have been the voters misreading the initiative. I'm sure it didn't have anything to do with the initiative's backers misreading the voters.
