As a Colorado resident it is critical that you be aware of what is taking place today. There is an absolutely dreadful and evil piece of legislation being proposed today (March 9th) by the Health and Insurance Committee of your Colorado state legislature. It is HB 1279 or Reproductive Health Equity Act or RHEA. and would result in Colorado becoming the most pro-abortion state in the nation.
If passed, here are few specifics:
- It will legalize the killing of a human being in the womb at any stage of pregnancy, even until the moment of birth, and make it into a state law.
- It declares that a woman has a fundamental right to end the life of her baby.
- The bill prohibits ALL "State or local laws, ordinances, policies, procedures, regulatory guidelines and rules, practices, executive orders, and governmental actions and their implementation, whether statutory or otherwise" from limiting or refraining any access to abortions in any way, regardless of the age of the mother. This effectively ends any parental notification laws as well.
- It perpetuates the lie that killing a human being is "Reproductive Health Care."
And many other egregious actions which violate the normal human conscience. Ignore the supporters of this bill no matter who they are or what they say.
Here’s what you can do:
CONTACT the sponsors of the bill as well your own representative. State Sen. Julie Gonzales (Denver), Rep. Meg Froelich (Englewood), and Rep. Daneya Esgar (Pueblo). If you’re not sure who your Representative is, you can go here. Just plug in your residence address.
CONTACT members of the Committee hearing the bill:
