Colorado voters fail to approve 22-week abortion ban, Proposition 115

CNA Staff, Nov 3, 2020 / 09:47 pm (CNA).- Voters in Colorado rejected a ballot measure that would have banned abortion in the state after 22 weeks of pregnancy, except in cases where a mother’s life is threatened.

Proposition 115 failed 59%-41%, with 81.5% of precincts reporting, according to the Associated Press.

If the ballot measure had passed, doctors would have faced a three-year license suspension for performing or attempting to perform an abortion of an unborn child beyond 22 weeks of gestation. Women would not have been charged for seeking or obtaining an illegal abortion.

The amendment is designed to impede a state court from concluding any implicit right to abortion or public abortion funding in the state’s constitution.
