It wasn’t all about the presidency. Other important decisions also made last Tuesday, with mixed results, include:

Marriage as the union of a man and a woman:
  • Arizona (Prop 102)—Approved!
  • Florida (Amdt 2)—Approved!
  • California (Prop 8)—yes, California—Approved! (This reverses the California Supreme Court’s decision last May declaring same-sex marriage as a constitutionally-protected right.)

Little People:
  • Colorado (Question 48)—Personhood Amendment, defining “person” as any human being from the moment of fertilization. Defeated.
  • South Dakota (Initiative Measure 11)—Abortion Ban Initiative to prohibit all abortions except for rape, incest, or mother’s health. Defeated.
  • California (Prop 4)—Require parental notification 48 hours prior to abortions for minors. Defeated.
  • Michigan (Proposal 2)—Stem Cell Initiative to allow use of donated embryos for stem cell research. Approved.

Sick People:
  • Washington (I-1000)—Legalize assisted suicides. Approved.
  • Michigan (Proposal 1)—Allow critically ill patients to grow/use marijuana. Approved.

Hmm...kind of puts our Rainy Day Amendment into perspective for me...

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good....
~ Genesis 1:27, 31
