Ballot initiative sought to ban late-term abortions in Colorado

Abortion in Colorado would be banned after 22 weeks through an initiative advocates hope to place on statewide ballots next year.

The only exception would be if a doctor determines a mother’s life is at risk. In all other cases, performing an abortion after 22 weeks would be a class 3 felony, on par with second-degree murder or vehicular homicide and punishable by up to a dozen years in prison.

The proposed initiative was filed Friday by Erin Behrens and Giuliana Day. Behrens said on Facebook that she began pushing legislators for a late-term abortion ban 10 months ago, when she was in the advanced stages of pregnancy. Dismayed by Republicans unable to pass restrictions and Democrats unwilling to, she opted for a ballot initiative instead.

“A few years ago, I found out that Colorado is one of the few places in the world where abortion is legal up to birth for any reason,” Behrens told The Denver Post on Tuesday. “It did not make sense that we would allow this, while 43 other states, including California and New York, did not.”

1. Do these assholes understand that these procedures are so rare and are done in cases where the baby

...either died in utero, has some fatal anomaly (like a swollen Brain from encephalitis etc) making it where if still “alive” it will die soon after birth and that a vaginal birth is risky to the mother as well as a C-section????

God I hate these assholes who want to dictate to a woman about her body and health and put her at risk and also limit Doctors to do what they have to for their patient - the Mother.

3. Once again,

If you don't believe in abortion then don't have one. Otherwise, shut the fuck up.

It's not as though these people ever support anything at all that helps out a pregnant woman, such as pre natal care, or help in paying for day care, or health care for women and their children. It's not as though they actually give a flying fuck about the realities of life itself. Or that they ever understand that women do not get miraculously pregnant without the input (so to speak) of a man.
