Following a 13-hour debate, the Colorado Senate on Wednesday passed an extreme abortion bill that would claim abortion as a fundamental right and deny any rights to pre-born human beings.
“This is a dark day for the Colorado Democrat Party and any individual who respects the sanctity of life,” said Colorado GOP Chairwoman Kristi Burton Brown. “If Jared Polis decides to sign this extreme abortion bill, he will put Colorado’s abortion laws on par with China and North Korea. The Democrats have chosen to spend weeks of this session pushing a barbaric abortion bill, instead of fighting for issues that would help Colorado families. Republicans know every child deserves to be protected in love and in law. We will never stop standing up for life.”
HB22-1279, or the Reproductive Health Equity Act, passed the Senate in a 20-15 vote and will now head to the desk of Gov. Jared Polis, who is expected to sign it. It strips every pre-born human being at any point in pregnancy of their human rights, stating that a human being within the womb “does not have independent or derivative rights under the laws of the state.”
….The bill could mean that health care workers will be forced participate in or commit abortions against their will and conscientious objections. It would also mean that women can make choices about abortion based on the “pregnancy’s outcomes” which implies that babies who survive abortion or are born with a previously undiagnosed health condition could be left to die if the mother wishes it.
“Under the rules proposed by this bill, if a child is delivered alive during an abortion the doctors are under no legal compulsion to provide standard medical care as they would in any other circumstance and attempt to preserve the child’s life,” said Live Action’s director of government affairs, Noah Brandt. “Medical providers would listen to the mother’s instructions. which could include not providing life-sustaining medical care to the child, which would lead to the child’s death, which most reasonable people would consider infanticide.”
Colorado does not have any gestational age restrictions on abortion. If enacted, this bill would take that lack of laws a step further and guarantee abortion to anyone for any reason at any point in pregnancy.
The above comes from a March 24 story on LiveAction.org.
This legislation is from the devil with assistance from his minions in the Democratic party. We are no better here in California, sad to say. Some day hence future generations will be shocked at the barbarism of 21st century politics, and wonder how this could have happened in a supposedly civilized society.
Colorado has been completely Californicated.
Plus the male governor is married to a man.
Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?
This won’t happen because of the consecration to Mary.
One question: why would Satan want abortion? Aborted babies die only with the guilt of original sin, not the guilt of personal sin. Babies who die unbaptized go to limbo, not to hell. So why would Satan want abortion? He doesn’t get the babies into hell that way. Why not oppose abortion and let the babies grow up to the age of reason, at which point they commit personal sin and can merit hell? If the objective is to get souls into hell, legal abortion seems a poor strategy to accomplish that. A miscalculation on Satan’s part.
Why would Satan want abortion? Because Satan loves violence, murder and crime– especially violence and murder of angelic, innocent, helpless little children. Satan especially loves the corruption, destruction, and murder of angelic and innocent souls.
The gay married governor of that state has said he will sign the bill into law. Of course.
All the Californians who moved to Colorado are ruining that state.

Well, if you will keep your “bad boys” — and “bad girls, too” — we will keep ours. Stop dumping them on us. (Laughter.)
Thou shalt not kill. This is one of the 10 commandments. I guess the Left does not believe in GOD. They think they are GOD!
The last time I look, a baby is a human being and it would be an act of murder for those who consent and those who perform this act of violence.
This is Baal worship. No different than when Pharoh threw baby boys into the Nile or when Herod killed all baby boys up to 2 years old.Ultimately they will try to increase the age to 2. Satan comes to kill, steal and destroy. Judgement is coming.
