Description

An anti-choice group said they would protest at each of our women's health centers in Colorado for 40 days, so we have been showing up to protest these haters at the Planned Parenthood at Fillmore and Centennial. This video was taken Saturday, April 12, 2014 when the local bishop, Sheridan and priest, Carmody showed up to hold a mass of hate against women's health. Teabaggers in the Colorado House have introduced House Bill 1133 which defines a fetus as a "unborn human being" at the moment of fertilization and forbids doctors from prescribing any medication or performing any procedure that could result in the "termination of the life of an unborn human being." The measure could end up banning emergency contraception along with abortion, depending on how it's interpreted, since these idiots are notorious for NOT knowing the difference between implantation forms of contraception and barrier forms, hormonal forms or IUDs that stop conception AND for thinking that emergency contraception affects a fertilized egg, instead of stopping the fertilization. HB 1133 would sentence doctors to up to 12 years in prison and a $750,000 in fines for a class 3 felony. Our state is the birthplace of the so-called "personhood" movement — the radical vaticon ideology of defining life as beginning at fertilization and endowing a zygote, a blastocyst, a hollow ball of undifferentiated cells, an embryo, a morula, a single diploid cell with all the rights of any U.S. citizen, and MORE rights than the female host within whose body it dwells. Potential side effects would be to arrest women for spontaneous miscarriages OR for anything deemed to not facilitate the uterus in implantation of a fertilized egg, which could include airplane travel, scuba diving, use of aspirin or any NSAIDs, synthetic thyroid medication, heart medication, acne drugs or even insulin. Lawyers could sue on behalf of the zygote for anything from and inheritance to suing it's sibling for murder for leaving a roller skate at the bottom of the stairs... accidentally causing the woman to trip and miscarry. Regressives in Colorado have persistently introduced these personhood bills for years. They always fail but Oklahoma, Virginia and Colorado have all passed personhood bills through at least one committee of the legislature this year... AND North Dakota will have it on the ballot in November. Planned Parenthood's network of more than 820 health care centers provides critical reproductive health services for men and women, including Pap smears, contraception, cancer screenings, and testing for sexually transmitted diseases and infections. They provide these services on a sliding pay scale based on income, and help more than three million people each year, including two million low-income women, many of whom often lack access to preventive health services. Pro choice is NOT pro abortion. No one is FOR abortions.
