        The link I was looking at there is the Senate version, which doesn't seem to contain personhood language.  But looking at the Assembly version, which seems to be very differently constructed (or maybe I'm looking at a summary rather than the full bill, their site is kind of confusing to navigate) there's this language:

        1 Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Colorado:
        2 SECTION 1. In Colorado Revised Statutes, add 18-1-506 as
        3 follows:
        4 18-1-506.Construction of statutes regarding unbornmembers
        5 of the species homo sapiens. IFTHECOMMISSIONOFANYCRIMECODIFIED
        6 IN THIS TITLE OR TITLE 42,C.R.S., IS THE PROXIMATE CAUSE OF DEATH OR
        7 INJURY TO AN UNBORN MEMBER OF THE SPECIES HOMO SAPIENS, THE
        8 RESPECTIVE HOMICIDE AND ASSAULT CHARGES FOR THAT DEATH OR
        9 INJURYMAY BE BROUGHT CONTEMPORANEOUSLYWITH THE UNDERLYING
        10 CHARGES.
        Perhaps the Senate version is an alternative designed to give members cover when they vote against the Assembly language?  I know nothing of Colorado politics, so I have no idea.
