    Colorado. From The Maddow Blog:

    GOP for big government in a small uterus
    In this year of extremist anti-choice Republican candidates, conservatives in Colorado have found a measure that might go too far, even for them. The proposed Amendment 62 would add this language to the constitution: "Person defined. As used in sections 3, 6, and 25 of Article II of the state constitution, the term "person" shall apply to every human being from the beginning of the biological development of that human being. It's enough that GOP Senate candidate Ken Buck, who would force women to bear their rapist's babies and those of their relatives, too, has backed away from supporting it.

    The Fetal Personhood Amendment, as it's known, would categorize fertilized human eggs as people. It gives the zygote the same
    rights as those of us who are out in the world and moving around. "To my fellow @Maddow watchers- if a zygote has the same rights as us, can they marry each other?" @ims tweets. "Wait. Not everyone can do that. Never mind."

    And that's not all. According to Leslie Hanks, one of Amendment 62's authors, it would make certain forms of the pill and other contraceptive devices illegal. "Many of the oral contraceptives have an action that makes the womb inhospitable to a developing embryo and, hence, the new living, growing baby is prevented from residing where his or her creator intended until birth."

    Indian Tribunal Orders 2 Sisters Raped As Punishment For Brother's Elopement

    An unelected, all-male village council in India has decided to punish a man who eloped with a married woman by ordering his two sisters to be raped. The two women, ages 23 and 15, fled their village in the Baghpat district after the decision was handed down on July 30.

    The Times of India reports that the brother ran away with a woman who belonged to a higher caste.

    Other family members who fled with the sisters say they fear for their lives should they return, and their home has already been looted by other villagers ... and say they've also experienced harassment from local police.

    The unelected council also mandated that the sisters be paraded naked with blackened faces around their town.

    Despite government efforts to address India's high levels of rape, sentences from local tribunals have continued. A similar incident made headlines last year when a 20-year-old woman was ordered to be gang-raped after village elders objected to her relationship with another man ... The Washington Post notes the number of reported rape cases in India skyrocketed nearly 900 percent in the 40 years leading up to 2012, when nearly 25,000 incidents were reported.
