Colorado is a state of lunacy and degeneracy that does NOT value human life.
Gov. Jared Polis (D) signed House Bill 22-1279, better known as the Reproductive Health Equity Act, into law to legalize a pregnant woman’s “fundamental right to continue a pregnancy and give birth or to have an abortion and to make decisions about how to exercise that right.”
In other words, Colorado will allow expectant mothers to terminate a pregnancy at any time up until birth.
“A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus does not have independent or derivative rights under the laws of this state.”
Besides the all-out war against children in-utero, because it defines abortion as a right, the law could also be used to attempt to force medical professionals to commit or participate in abortions. There are zero conscience protections in the law.

Colorado governor Jared Polis just signed a bill legalizing abortion all the way up until the moment of birth.
The law states that an unborn human being “does not have independent or derivative rights under the laws of this state.”

Jeff Hunt, president of the Colorado think-tank the Centennial Institute, lamented Polis’ signing of the bill.
“This will go down as one of the worst days in Colorado history. Pro-abortionists at the Colorado capitol sealed the fate of countless lives,” Hunt said.

Fox News reported:
Gov. Jared Polis, D-Colo., signed into law a bill creating a “fundamental right” to abortion, contraception, and other forms of “reproductive health-care rights,” while explicitly denying any right to a fetus. The bill explicitly addresses the Supreme Court’s upcoming decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, in which the Court is expected to overturn the abortion precedent in Roe v. Wade (1973).
Polis signed H.B. 22-1279, the “Reproductive Health Equity Act,” which the governor said “codifies a person’s fundamental right to make reproductive health-care decisions free from government interference.”
“In the State of Colorado, the serious decision to start or end a pregnancy with medical assistance will remain between a person, their doctor, and their faith,” Polis added in his statement Monday.
The law states that “Access to abortion and reproductive health care is currently under attack across the nation. Impending federal court cases, including Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization,… jeopardize access to legal abortion care for tens of millions of people, particularly those living in most Southern and Midwestern states.”
The Denver Post added:
The bill passed out of the Colorado legislature last month on a party-line vote, with Democrats, who are in control of both chambers, voting in favor of the bill. Each hearing on the bill garnered hours of debate and heavy Republican opposition.
“…It’s more important now than ever for all Colorado to make sure we are protecting women and people who choose to be pregnant or choose to not be pregnant across this great state,” Esgar said before the bill was signed into law.
Colorado joins 15 other states and the District of Columbia that have codified abortion into law with the signing of the “Reproductive Health Equity Act.”
