New bill in legislature aims to ban abortion in Colorado
DENVER — A new bill that aims to ban abortion in Colorado will be debated in a state House committee Tuesday.
Opponents of the proposal plan to protest at the Capitol in response.
The House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on what’s called the “Protect Human Life at Conception Act.”
It would make abortions a class 3 felony in all cases, including rape and incest.
A group will gather on the Capitol steps Tuesday to make sure their opposition to the bill is heard.
A similar bill was proposed and defeated in the Colorado legislature seven years ago.
