Our Impact

Colorado women deserve to have the freedom to live empowered lives when it comes to family planning, birth control, and abortion.

Each year, NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado releases legislative scorecards, political reports, and ballot guides to inform our members and the pro-choice community about the representatives, bills, and ballot initiatives that impact reproductive health, rights, and justice in Colorado.

Here's a sampling of NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado's 2014-2015 impact on access to choice in Colorado: 

  • Defeated Amendment 67, Personhood, with 65% of Colorado voters;
  • Defeated 6 anti-choice bills presented in the Colorado Legislature (2015);
    • HB15-1041 Protect Human Life at Conception
    • HB15-1162 Ban Sex-Selective Abortions*
    • HB15-1112 Born-Alive Infant Protection Act*
    • HB15-1128 Women's Health Protection Act*
    • SB15-268 Offenses Against Unborn Children*
