Abortion Ban falls in Committee

Senator Scott Renfroe's ban on abortion-on-demand, SB07-143 was killed in committee last night.

Despite moving testimony in favor of the bill, it was killed on a 4-3 party line vote.

Read the RMN's story here.

From the story:

Chelsea Warne, 17, who was born with spina bifida and uses a wheelchair, said no one, including her mother, had the right to decide if her life had value or if she would be a burden on society.

''If I have no value nestled in my mother's womb how can I have value in a world who sees me as broken, a mistake, and somehow less?'' said Warne, who plans to enter the pre-nursing program at the University of Northern Colorado in the fall. [Emphasis added]
