Opt-out of Physician-Assisted Suicide

 

Local Catholic hospitals are exercising their right to opt-out of participating in the Colorado End-of-Life Options Act, which legalized physician-assisted suicide. Some are questioning their rights to do so.

 

The aid-in-dying law contains a conscience clause, which allows doctors and providers to opt-out of writing a prescription for life-ending medication.

PLEASE TAKE ACTION TODAY ON HB 17 1085 & HB 17 1086

House Bill 1085 – Woman’s Health Protection Act.  This bill would require all abortion clinics to file an annual registration with the attorney general and that the attorney general has the right and duty to inspect any abortion clinic operating in the State of Colorado.  This legislation helps ensure that women are protected and cared for in a manner consistent with sound medical practice and procedure and are receiving care at clinics that must meet the basic health and safety requirements that we already require of almost every other type of medical facility in the State performing any type of medical procedure.  The Colorado Catholic Conference SUPPORTS this legislation. 
 
This bill will be heard in the House Health, Insurance & Environment Committee on Thursday, February 9, 2017 at 1:30pm in Room 271. 
 
ACTION: Please contact your Representative and members of the Health, Insurance & Environment Committee and ask them to protect women and support HB 1085.

HOUSE HEALTH, INSURANCE & ENVIRONMENT COMMITTEE IS LISTED BELOW


House Bill 1086 -  Abortion Pill Reversal Information Act.  This bill ensures that a woman is given information regarding the possibility of an abortion pill reversal so that she is fully informed and is given options to continue the pregnancy if she desires to do so.  The bill would also require that the department of public health and environment publish a statement on its website regarding abortion pill reversal; a woman’s doctor shall provide her with this information at least 24 hours before providing the abortion pill.  The Colorado Catholic Conference SUPPORTS this legislation.  It is imperative that every woman considering an abortion receives comprehensive information on abortion, including the potential to reverse the effects of abortion-inducing drugs should she change her mind.

This bill will be heard in the House Health, Insurance & Environment Committee on Thursday, February 9, 2017 at 1:30pm in Room 271. 

ACTION: Please contact your Representative and members of the Health, Insurance & Environment Committee and ask them to protect women and support HB 1086.
