House Bill 1203 – Woman’s Health Protection Act. 

This bill would require doctors who perform abortions to have local hospital admitting privileges and for abortion facilities to meet surgical center health and safety standards and for abortion facilities to be licensed by the Colorado attorney general.  This legislation helps ensure that woman 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 April 7, 2016 at 1:30pm.

ACTION: Please contact your Representative and members of the Health, Insurance & Environment Committee and ask them to protect women and support HB 1203.
