It’s been a busy couple of weeks in the Colorado capitol, especially for reproductive health care issues. After a long battle in the House on Thursday, February 9th, three anti-choice bills were rejected. House Bill 1086 “Abortion Pill Reversal Information Act,” House Bill 1108 “Protect Human Life At Conception,” and House Bill 1085 “Women’s Protection Act,” were all rejected in the Democratic-controlled House Committee on Health, Insurance, & Environment. While the rejection of these three bills is a victory, we must remain vigilant; each of these bills lost in a tight 6-5 vote.
