Colorado abortion access bill signed into law by Jared Polis

1 min read


Gov. Jared Polis on Monday signed into law a bill affirming access to abortion and contraception in Colorado as Democrats brace for the possibility that the U.S. Supreme Court could overturn the Roe v. Wade precedent in the coming weeks. 

“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 at a bill signing ceremony at the governor’s mansion in downtown Denver. “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.”

The legislature approved House Bill 1279 last month along party lines, with Republicans spending hours arguing against the measure’s passage. The bill was debated in the House for 24 consecutive hours
