Colorado to allow unrestricted abortion access for entire pregnancy

Colorado Democrat Governor Jared Polis signed a bill into law on Monday that allows for complete and unrestricted abortion access. No limits are listed in the bill, meaning that there are no circumstances under which a woman seeking to terminate her unborn child could not do so.

"No matter what the Supreme Court does in the future, people in Colorado will be able to choose when and if they have children," Polis said while signing the legislation into law, according to Colorado Sun.

"We want to make sure that our state is a place where everyone can live and work and thrive and raise a family on their own terms," Polis added. This is in keeping with Colorado's position to be a "sanctuary state" for abortion access.

Colorado HB 22 1279, otherwise known at the Reproductive Health Equity Act, attests that abortion is a "fundamental right" and that governments shall not "deny, restrict, interfere with, or discriminate against" an individual's right to "have an abortion."
