State demands abortions for women who don’t want them, gets sued

The state of Colorado, run by majority Democrats in the statehouse and governor’s office, has been radically pro-abortion for a number of years already.

Lawmakers in recent years have decided, in fact, that the unborn have no rights – ever – in the state.

But now it’s being sued for going too far in its promotion of – and demand for – abortion by insisting that women who don’t want an abortion must have one.

The Washington Examiner reports that pro-abortion Democrats in the state are trying to outlaw a common procedure that is used successfully around the world when women start the abortion pill process to kill their unborn, but then change their minds.

The result is that for now, Bella Health and Wellness, a Catholic health center, has been granted an exemption from a law signed by Gov. Jared Polis, an open homosexual who for years has been all-in on the most extreme abortion ideologies, signed only days ago.

Defendants in the lawsuit are the attorney general, the Colorado Medical Board, the Colorado State Board of Nursing, and three district attorneys.

Judge Daniel D. Domenico, a Trump appointee, placed a temporary restraining order on enforcement of the law.

The treatment addresses progesterone, a hormone vital to the maintenance of the unborn during pregnancy.

The abortion drug mifepristone cuts off progesterone supplies to the unborn, effectively killing the baby.

But if the mother is treated with progesterone, often her pregnancy can be saved.

Colorado’s extreme pro-abortion measure claims to target what leftists claim are “anti-abortion centers.” They actually are crisis pregnancy centers and offer a great many services to mothers.

The state has wildly claimed that those treatments, which repeatedly have been documented as successful, are “deceptive trade practices.”

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, an avowed abortion advocate, does not support the treatments.

But Bella Health has retained the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty to represent them in the case, the Examiner reported.

“This is perfectly legal treatment, whether it’s California or Alabama or, however pro-choice or pro-life state you want to think of, and all of them, it’s legal for a woman who doesn’t want to continue with an abortion to stop taking the pills and to try their best to keep a pregnancy,” Becket Fund President Mark Rienzi told the Washington Examiner. “It’s a terrible law that’s bad for women and bad for doctors and nurses who are trying to help women.”

Counsel Laura Wolk Slavis explained the issue simply is that Colorado “targets women who have changed their minds and forces them to undergo abortions they want to stop.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: Question: Why do the political and corporate leaders of America – long the freest, most successful, most prosperous and most Christian nation in history – bow and scrape before China, a ruthless, communist, totalitarian and explicitly atheistic dictatorship openly committed to ruling the world, including America?

The astonishing answers come into focus only when one contemplates both the unprecedented level of political and financial corruption in America’s ruling class (multiple Biden family members received $31 million in payola from China), and simultaneously the communist Chinese government’s brilliantly devious methods of unconventional total warfare, by which China is stealthily infiltrating, subverting, corrupting and colonizing the United States of America.

The China threat has rarely been more dramatically or pointedly documented than in the sensational March issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOW CHINA IS CONQUERING AMERICA.” Whistleblower is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
