Colorado Democrats Support Infanticide

b2ap3_thumbnail_baby-feet.jpgWERE YOU AWARE OF THIS?  I WAS NOT!

“Today, March 4, 2015, in the House Public Health Care & Human Services Committee, Colorado Democrats, on a party line vote, defeated the ‘Born Alive Infant Protection Act’ (HB 1112).  This bill would have ensured that any child born alive during the course of an abortion would be entitled to appropriate and reasonable medical care and treatment.”
