The bills passed on Friday include one that would restrict access to later abortion in the state, and another bill that would make it a separate crime to kill or injure a fetus during an attack on a pregnant woman.
As expected, a bill banning most abortions in Colorado was killed in the state legislature Tuesday. The state house majority leader, a Democrat, called the Republican house majority leader’s sponsorship of the anti-choice legislation a move to ”pander to the right wing of their party.”
A bill that would make it a separate crime to kill or injure a fetus in crimes committed against a pregnant woman passed the Florida House Judiciary Committee on Monday, and now heads to a vote on the house floor.
Anti-choice state lawmakers have introduced legislation in Colorado that defines life as beginning at conception, reflecting ”personhood” ballot initiatives defeated overwhelmingly in 2008 and 2010.
