When a woman uses chemical abortion to terminate her baby, she takes one pill the first day to block progesterone and kill the baby. The regimen for the second day expels the deceased child's body from the womb.
However, if the woman changes her mind after taking the first pill and seeks immediate and appropriate medical care, the abortion can be stopped in 62% of cases.
Marcie Little of Colorado for Life tells AFN a bill to eliminate that option (SB23-190) is floating through the legislature.
"What legislators here in Colorado want to do is not allow women to pursue abortion pill reversal if they change their mind after the first drug," she relays. "A lot of women do feel a sense of instant regret and wonder what their options are. Legislators here don't want her to have any options."
If the measure passes, women who change their minds would be forced via legislative edict to continue the unwanted abortion. Killing the bill will be tough.
"We face an uphill battle here in Colorado, where we're up against legislators and others who don't care about a woman's ability to change her mind," Little recognizes. "They don't want her to be able to try to choose life."
Colorado for Life has initiated a petition asking people to voice their opposition to the measure, which Little says demonstrates the marriage between left-wing lawmakers and the abortion cartel.
