New laws protect abortion in Colorado

1 min read


Colorado joins Illinois as a progressive bastion for reproductive rights surrounded mostly by conservative states.

DENVER — Democratic Colorado Gov. Jared Polis signed a set of health care bills Friday afternoon to enshrine access to abortion and gender-affirming procedures and medications, as the Democrat-led state tries to make itself a safe haven for its neighbors, whose Republican leaders are restricting care.

The goal of the legislation is to ensure people in surrounding states and beyond can go to Colorado to have an abortion, begin puberty blockers or receive gender-affirming surgery. Bordering states of Wyoming and Oklahoma have passed abortion bans and Utah has prohibited transgender care for minors.
