A ballot initiative to ban abortions in Colorado after 22 weeks did not pass, with 59% of people voting no.

The proposed measure would have made exceptions in cases where a woman's life is in danger but not for rape or incest. 

Meanwhile, an abortion initiative in Louisiana did pass with 62% of the vote. 

It declares there is no provision in the state constitution protecting abortion rights or requiring funding for abortions.
