All are invited to join the fight to protect unborn and newborn babies at a rally and press conference before the committee hearing for the Born Alive After Abortion Bill Feb. 11 at the Colorado State Capital.
House Bill 20-1068 would require doctors to deliver the same level of care and diligence to preserve the life and health of a living baby born during or after an abortion and establishes a doctor-patient relationship when a living child is born under such circumstances. If passed, the bill would also require that the child is immediately transferred to a hospital.
Any physician who does not provide the same care to a child born during or after an abortion would be fined $100,000, and the bill also stipulates the state attorney general can file a lawsuit to collect the fine from the physician in question. The bill would make this violation a class three felony, and the person who reports the felony would remain confidential. If passed, anyone who fails to report the felony would be charged with a class one misdemeanor.
Attendees will have the opportunity to pray the rosary at the State Capitol during the hearing and testify at the committee. If you’re unable to attend this rally, they ask you to please pray for all involved in the praying and testifying, the legislators, but mostly, pray for the children already lost and those who can still be saved.
“Please come testify in these bill hearings. It is imperative to call, write, or email your state representatives in support of HB20-1068 and HB20-1098. Most especially, pray the rosary at the start of bill testimony to bring an end to late-term abortion in Colorado!” said Michael Moubarek, President of the Catholic Medical Association Student Section at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.
