By Denver Catholic Staff Editor’s note. This appeared November 16 in the Denver Catholic. Despite major victories in the pro-life cause around the U.S. in the wake of the Dobbs decision, Colorado’s legislators and special interest groups continue to push to make Colorado an abortion destination state. One needn’t look further than Propositions 115 and 106 or various …Continue reading "Pro-life Colorado coalition shows the way: cautions against upcoming ballot initiatives"
By Dave Andrusko Late Saturday night, Judge Daniel D. Domenico granted a preliminary injunction sought by Bella Health against the state of Colorado that prevents officials from enforcing a first-of-its-kind law that targets religious healthcare clinics that offer women care in accordance with their faith.

By Dave Andrusko Breaking with the state medical board, the Colorado Nursing Board refused to classify “abortion reversal” treatment as unprofessional conduct. “The nursing board passed a rule declaring it will not treat abortion reversal as a ‘per se act subjecting a licensee to discipline’ for providing the treatment, but will instead review individual complaints …Continue reading "Colorado Nursing Boarding breaks with Colorado Medical Board over abortion reversal treatment"
By Dave Andrusko For the second time in recent legislative sessions, Colorado Democrats blocked HB18 — “A Women’s Right To Accurate Healthcare Information”—that would have “required physicians to inform women seeking to abort that they can conduct and view an ultrasound prior to aborting, as well as listen to the heartbeat of their unborn child,” …Continue reading "Colorado Democrats block chance for women to view ultrasound prior to an abortion"
By Dave Andrusko Pro-lifers know, of course, that there were many changes in abortion laws in the 1960s and 1970s prior to the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision which obliterated the abortion statutes of all 50 states, whether they were relatively protective or essentially abortion on demand. But there is a reason pro-abortionists are making …Continue reading "50 years ago today Colorado passed an historic abortion law which unleashed the abortion machinery"
By Nancy Valko Of course, the big news from the national voting last week was the stunning election of Donald Trump as president. But barely mentioned by the media except for its passage was Colorado’s Proposition 106 “End of Life Options Act” initiative which won by a 65% to 35% popular vote. Now five states …Continue reading "“End of Life Options” act passes in Colorado"
By Jennifer Popik, J.D. Robert Powell Center for Medical Ethics Amidst an election night full of surprises, Colorado voters approved Proposition 106, known as the “End of Life Options Act” which will legalize assisted suicide. Colorado becomes the 5th state to legalize the dangerous practice joining California, Oregon, Washington, and Vermont. Additionally, the Supreme Court …Continue reading "Proposition 106 passes, assisted suicide now permitted in Colorado"
By Dave Andrusko In staving off assisted suicide laws and/or initiatives, at the top of the heap is the opposition of medical associations to proposals to legalize what is now euphemistically labeled “aid in dying.” But in rightly emphasizing the importance of a wide-ranging set of opponents that includes medical groups, we shouldn’t overlook editorial …Continue reading "Proposition 106,“a dangerous idea that can only endanger vulnerable patients and exacerbate Colorado’s suicide crisis”"
By John Stonestreet Whether you live in Colorado or not, you need to know what’s at stake with doctor-assisted death and how to make the case for life.

Coloradans will vote on an assisted suicide measure this November. Those who vote “Yes” are signing their own death warrants. By John Stonestreet In a recent article at National Review Online, George Weigel tells a chilling story about just how far the culture of death has advanced in some parts of the West. Three elderly …Continue reading "A Suicidal Ballot in Colorado"
By Wesley J. Smith The media is wholly in the tank for the assisted suicide agenda. Witness the Brittany Maynard PR blitz and the recent stories about a happy “right to die” party. That is why almost all media followed their marching orders to call assisted suicide “aid in dying.” This polled and focus group-tested …Continue reading "Rare Media Refusal to Deploy Suicide Word Engineering"
By Wesley J. Smith When people say assisted suicide is only for the terminally ill, I know they are either lying or ignorant of what the movement really wants. If suicide or killing is an acceptable response to a terminal diagnosis, why not also for those who will suffer perhaps more and for a longer …Continue reading "Colorado attempt to extend assisted suicide to those with disabilities"
