A new constitutional amendment defining human life is set for the November ballot in Colorado.
Amendment 48 defines a person as "any human being from the moment of fertilization."
But opponents fear that definition could affect the use of birth control and other fertility procedures.
"Defining an egg as a person in our constitution and statutes isn't science-based and makes bad public policy," Crystal Clinkenbeard, a spokeswoman for Protect Families Protect Choices, said.
Yet supporters like Kristi Burton of Colorado for Equal Rights say science is on their side and that it's their job to put the truth out there for voters.
Burton lead the petition drive to get the amendment on the ballot
"We turned in just over 130,000 signatures and about 103,000 were found to be valid, which is a really good number," she said.
Only 76,000 were required.
