‘A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus does not have independent or derivative rights under the state’s laws,’ states Colorado’s new bill.
DENVER – Dem. Gov. Jared Polis of Colorado signed a bill that allows abortion until the moment of birth.

“No matter what the Supreme Court does in the future, people in Colorado will be able to choose when and if they have children,” Polis said. “We want to make sure that our state is a place where everyone can live and work and thrive and raise a family on their own terms.”
The bill stated that it legalizes in Colorado to deny, restrict, interfere with or discriminate against an individual’s fundamental right to use or refuse contraception or to continue a pregnancy and give birth or to have an abortion,” while adding that “a fertilized egg, embryo or fetus does not have independent or derivative rights under the laws of the 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,” Lila Rose shared on social media.
“Abortion at nine months?!” Flint Bedrock added.

Signing the bill appeared right before the anticipated US Supreme Court decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organizations in June, which pro-lifers hoped could reverse the 1973 Roe v. Wade precedent that legalized abortion.
Many Republicans like Wyoming, Arizona, and Florida want to limit abortion, but the Dems want to expand abortion.
Under AB 2223’s language, a “person shall not be subject to civil or criminal liability or penalty, or otherwise deprived of their rights, based on their actions or omissions with respect to their pregnancy or actual, potential, or alleged pregnancy outcome, including miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion, or perinatal death.”
Thomas More Society special counsel Charles LiMandri stated the proposal “exposes the false narrative that the abortion lobby has been peddling for over half a century: That no one knows when life begins, and babies in their mothers’ wombs feel no pain. No sane person can deny that a newborn infant is a fully developed human being, one that is capable of feeling intense pain. Yet, by including ‘perinatal’ in its provisions, [the bill] would authorize the brutal murder of these infants even after they are born.”
