Read the report HERE
As a preview to the 2016 Colorado General Assembly, NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado is releasing a new report, "Against Our Will: How National Anti-Choice Groups are Targeting the Pro-Choice Majority in Colorado." The report details how the same national anti-choice groups that are trying to outlaw abortion and effectively overturn Roe in other states have put Colorado on their agenda. The anti-choice state laws backed by these national groups in Texas have been taken up by the US Supreme Court, with oral arguments on March 2 and a decision due in June.
According to Karen Middleton, NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado Executive Director, "Seven in ten Americans believe in upholding Roe v Wade, the Supreme Court decision uphold the right to have an abortion. Colorado voters have stated repeatedly, by the same margins, that they believe the decision to have an abortion belongs between a woman and her doctor, without government interference.
”NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado hopes legislators, media, and Colorado citizens will find Against Our Will to be a useful resource going into the 2016 Legislative Session,” Middleton concluded. "Colorado is a pro-choice state, and we intend to keep voters informed on what’s at stake to keep it that way.” Read the Report Here.
