Both of these bills posed serious risks to the reproductive rights and health of Colorado women.
“The 20-week abortion ban is intrusive, based on lies, and serves only to further stigmatize reproductive choice, not to protect women or children. Denying women this safe, legal, merciful option and instead forcing them to suffer a stillbirth or carry a terminally ill pregnancy through their due date is cruel and misguided.”
NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado Applauds Rep. Diana DeGette for Protecting Access to Abortion for Jane Poe
We applaud Rep. DeGette for taking this action to protect the Constitutional rights of this young woman and of others. Taxpayers are paying public servants to follow the law, not to pursue their personal anti-abortion crusade on the public dime and at the expense of immigrant women.
