Colorado Partial-Birth Abortion Ban, Initiative 11 (1998)
The Colorado Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Initiative, also known as Initiative 11, was on the November 3, 1998 ballot in Colorado as an initiated state statute, where it was defeated. The measure would have banned partial-birth abortions and established criminal penalties for those who performed them. It would have defined partial-birth abortions as those abortions performed by someone who, "deliberately and intentionally causes to be delivered into the vagina a living human fetus or any substantive portion thereof for the purpose of performing any procedure the person knows will kill the fetus and kills the fetus before completing delivery."
