Colorado Family Action opposes House Bill 1154, Crimes Against Pregnant Women Act. Unfortunately, the title of this bill is misleading.
Within HB 1154 it seeks to repeal part 1 of article 6 of title 18 of our Colorado Revised Statute which includes the pre-Roe v. Wade criminal abortion statute. We believe there is no benefit to the pro-life community in repealing this language from our statute as it is our hope that one day Roe v. Wade will be overturned, even if currently it is unenforceable.
HB 1154 will be heard in the Senate Judiciary on Wednesday, April 17th, 2013 at 1:30pm in Room 356.
