A Colorado legislative panel banned a bill that would provide protections and medical assistance for babies born alive after abortion.
If House Bill 1068 had gone into law, a physician would be fined $100,000 for failing to “exercise the same degree of professional skill, care and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious physician would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age.”
The bill would require babies born alive after abortions be taken to hospitals. It also would outlaw abortions after 22 weeks.
Colorado’s House State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee rejected the proposed bill on Tuesday, Feb. 11.
Jeff Hunt, director of the Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University, tweeted his thoughts after news broke that the bill was rejected.
