2017 Your Life at Conception Petitions Delivered! Pro-Abort Politicians Don’t Care

2017 Your Life at Conception Petitions Delivered! Pro-Abort Politicians Don’t Care
Thousands of CCFL Members’ Petitions Submitted to HIE Committee for Life at Conception Act

Just after midnight I delivered your petitions supporting the Life at Conception Act to the
Health Insurance and Environment Committee at the Capitol, where the bill was heard.

For hours on end, Planned Parenthood politicians heard personal testimony
from women who endured the horrors of abortion firsthand.

They heard the testimony from a man who was adopted after his mother, a rape victim,
gave him his life despite the circumstances he was conceived in.

For hours they heard legal experts testify on the Constitutionality of protecting
the unborn.

And, in a bold testimony given by the CEO of Life Choices Medical Center,
they heard the scientific description from a former abortionist (Dr. Anthony Levatino)
on the procedure of a 1st and 2nd trimester abortion.

They can’t say they didn’t know – they heard every horrible detail. 

And, still, Pro-aborts in the Committee voted to kill the bill.

The Pro-aborts in the legislature think we’re finished.  They think we will quietly

go away so they can keep pushing their deadly agenda with impunity.

They are wrong.  You and I have come too far to quit now.

Colorado Campaign for Life will keep pushing for the protection of the unborn Colorado
babies whose very lives are threatened by Pro-aborts in the legislature.

We will not stop until abortion on demand ends.

That’s why today I ask you first to pray. 

Pray for the women who are thinking they need to abort their child.

Pray for the good Pro-life legislators who endured the attacks of the pro-abortion crowd. 
Pray that we will have the divine victory.

Second, I ask that you continue to stand with us.  We’re not done – we’re just getting warmed up.

Stand with us for victory!

CCFL Battles for Life at Conception Act

CCFL Battles for Life at Conception Act

A “blob of tissue,” “product of conception,” that’s what Planned Parenthood calls babies in the womb. Yet, they make money on selling tiny baby body parts after sucking them out of the mother.

Pro-lifers instinctively know what science has proven, at the moment of conception, you have a genetically distinct human life.

The Life at Conception Act, legally establishes that life begins the moment of conception. At which point, unborn children must be granted their constitutional right to life as noted by the Supreme Court in the Roe V Wade ruling;

“…if this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case {i.e. Roe} of course collapses, for the fetus’s right to life is then guaranteed by the 14th Amendment.” 

That’s why your Colorado Campaign for Life is doing everything possible to support the Life at Conception Act and overturning Roe v. Wade.

CCFL is signing up petitioners and sending thousands of mailings across the state, supporting the Life at Conception Act.

CCFL Executive Director Christy Rodriquez is fighting shoulder to shoulder with “Pro-Life Legislator of the Year” (2014), Representative Steve Humphrey and testifying before State House Committees on behalf of the unborn and Colorado Campaign for Life members urging legislators to support the Life at Conception Act.

Planned Parenthood, NARAL and abortionists always show up to ensure that the politicians bought and paid for by the abortion lobby toe the line and kill the bill in committee. 

This past session, 2016, despite the proven science behind life at conception, Planned Parenthood’s politicians Buckner, Esgar, Lontine, Primavera, Ryden, Ginal, McCann were installed on the HIE Committee to ensure the bill was killed. After all, killing is what they do best.

This year Representative Kim Ransom (R) (HD44) is toeing the line for women as the Co-Prime Sponsor, with Representative Humphrey, on the Life at Conception act.

We’re already ramping up efforts to legally recognize the lives of tiny humans in the womb. CCFL Volunteers were again gathering signatures at this year’s March for Life Celebration were thousands of Colorado Pro-lifers gathered in support of Life.

Endorsement from Representative Saine

Endorsement from Representative Saine

My name is Lori Saine and I’m the Pro-Life Conservative Representative for Colorado’s House District 63 and this year’s Colorado Campaign for Life’s 2016 Pro-life Defender.

Many people thank me for defending the unborn in the legislature.  But, today, I want to thank you for supporting Colorado Campaign for Life.

I sponsored the RIGHT Act – legislation enabling women to see their own ultrasound in an abortion clinic for many reasons but mainly because so many women are not told the truth at  some of these so-called ‘women’s clinics’.  I’ve heard that moms were told their baby was dead and they must abort, but in fact their baby was alive.   

Before the committee hearing for the RIGHT Act, CCFL mailed, emailed and Facebooked Pro-lifers garnering support of my bill. At the Capitol, your Executive Director sat by my side supporting the RIGHT Act because it’s been proven to save lives in other states.  Sadly, pro-aborts in the legislature killed the bill.

That’s just a sliver of what Colorado Campaign for Life does.  When pro-aborts attacked me this year, CCFL contacted Pro-Lifers in my district to tell them about my pro-life record.  And they’ve done the same for other pro-life legislators in Colorado.

That’s not easy. Pro-aborts have taxpayer monies pouring in through Planned Parenthood and other avenues. But, Colorado Campaign for Life relies solely on the contributions and support of good Pro-lifers like you.     

CCFL is changing the face of the legislature. I know when I run a life-saving piece of legislation like the RIGHT Act, or when Representative Humphrey runs the Life at Conception Act, CCFL will be there!

But, we need more Pro-life legislators in the Capitol if we are ever going to see unborn babies protected from abortion predators.     

That’s why I support Colorado Campaign for Life.  I pray you’ll join me in this critical work to end abortion on demand and saving the next generation of Coloradans by supporting Colorado Campaign for Life.

Sincerely,

Lori Saine
State Representative

After Debates, OB/GYN Doctor Takes to Facebook: “No Medical Situation Require Aborting or Killing the Baby in the 3rd Trimester”

After Debates, OB/GYN Doctor Takes to Facebook: “No Medical Situation Require Aborting or Killing the Baby in the 3rd Trimester”

No medical reason for abortion: “As an ob/gyn physician for 31 years there is no medical situation that requires aborting / killing the baby in the third trimester to “save the mother’s life.” Just deliver the baby by c/section and the baby has 95+% survival with readily available NICU care even at 28 weeks. C/section is quicker and safer than partial birth abortion for the mother.”  -Lawrence K. Koning, MD, FACOG

Pro-Life Legislator of the Year

Pro-Life Legislator of the Year

No squishes at CCFL’s Award’s Dinner. Only staunch Pro-Life Lawmakers who worked with Colorado Campaign for Life, sponsoring proven lifesaving legislation were recognized on stage.

Representative Patrick Neville is 2016’s CCFL Pro-Life Legislator of the Year, for sponsoring the Women’s Health Protection Act.

While abortion advocates in the Health   Insurance and Environment Committee,  attacked Rep. Neville, he staunchly defended unborn babies and women subject to abortion predators like Kermit Gosnell. 

Representative Lori Saine, is this year’s Pro-Life Defender, for her lifesaving  ‘RIGHT Act’ (HB1218), a common sense bill bitterly opposed by Planned Parenthood and pals.

Those very same Planned Parenthood Politicians who killed the Life at Conception Act, were charged with killing the Women’s Health Protection Act  and the RIGHT Act.

Planned Parenthood and the abortion lobby routinely buy-off politicians by filling campaign coffers with cash.

In return, those so-called lawmakers, quash bills that threaten the abortion industry and ensure taxpayer monies keep pumping into Planned Parenthood.

Standing against the abortion ‘Goliath’ for the sake of the unborn takes guts.  Legislators working with CCFL on these bills know they’ll likely be ambushed during the election season.

That’s why CCFL recognizes these Pro-life champions. And, that’s why your support of CCFL is so critical in ending abortion in Colorado. 

Sincerely,

Christy Rodriquez
Executive Director

The abortion giant Planned Parenthood started the ‘shout out your abortion’ campaign advancing the illusion that abortion will lead women into independence, personal bliss and wild success.

What a farce. How can any woman look at a bloody dismembered baby and shout for joy? 

The truth is, millions of women have thoughts of suicide and struggle with psychological problems. And, sadly, some women become sterile after abortion.

That’s not at a catchy tagline for abortion promoters.

Most women don’t want to talk about their abortion. The horror, shame and pain is too great.

And so, the abortion industry makes up campaigns glamorizing abortion; creating more customers and victims.

I can tell you – first hand – the ‘glamour’ is a lie. The ‘freedom’ is a lie. The ‘choice’ is a lie.

At 20 years old, I lived in New York City alone. Admittedly, I was a fearless sinner and soon found myself within the grasp of the abortion industry.

After sifting through pages of yellow page ads, I entered an office in Midtown Manhattan where the receptionist sat behind a bullet proof glass. It smelled like both a meat packing plant and dentist’s office. And, at 9 am, the large lobby was already packed, mostly with black and Hispanic women.

As we were herded from one room to the next our numbers diminished to about 20 where we were told to line up and pull our pants down, in front of everyone, to receive an injection. At the height of the Aids epidemic, they used the same needle on all of us. 

In what I now call ‘the killing room’, 10 women who were on OB tables, were positioned wagon wheel style and partitioned only by thin ER type curtains. 

We could hear everything; the whirr and hiss of the suction machine, the cries of the other women…

But by then the drugs were taking affect and it was easy to ignore the sounds and sink into the warm oblivion of the medication. Until the abortionist came in.

I’ll spare you the details of the physical pain. Honestly, much of it I can’t remember through the drug induced fog. When I came to, I was already outside the clinic but to this day I’m not sure how I got home.

It’s difficult to imagine how anyone could think ‘shouting out your abortion’ could be a good thing but it starts with legality. We tend to think, “Certainly abortion would be illegal if it were bad – right?”

Wrong. That’s why working for you as Executive Director of CCFL is such an honor and privilege. We’re bringing to light the culprits who are complicit in the lies of the industry by legislatively promoting the most deadly scourge of our time – abortion. 

I pray you will stand with Colorado Campaign for Life in exposing Pro-aborts in the public square and working to change the culture from one that glamorizes death to one that embraces life and is reflected in our laws.

Sincerely,

Christy Rodriquez
Executive Director

Planned Parenthood Politicians Kill Women’s Health Protection Bill

Planned Parenthood Politicians Kill Women’s Health Protection Bill

Dogs have more protective rights than women in Colorado abortion clinics. Yet, abortion proponents insist abortion must be legal to keep women from dying at the hands of amateur abortionists wielding a coat hanger.

But, after scouring Colorado statute, it’s evident that there is no oversight covering abortion clinics.

In fact, veterinary clinics and nail salons have a stricter code of conduct than abortion clinics.

CCFL Executive Director, Christy Rodriquez has personal experience with being treated like an animal in an abortion clinic.

“We were told to stand in a line of about 20   women,” Rodriquez recalls.  “At the end of the line they had us pull our pants down, in front of everyone in the room and gave us a shot using the same needle on all of us.” (See, Meet Our Executive Director for more of her personal testimony).

In December, 2016, Americans United for Life released a report; Unsafe: How The Public Health Crisis in America’s Abortion Clinics Endangers Women, documenting that 227 abortion providers in 32 states were cited for more than 1,400 health and safety deficiencies between 2008 and 2016.

However, there is no way of knowing what so-called health violations are perpetrated since there are no real laws regulating abortion clinics in Colorado.

In May 2013, Philadelphia Pennsylvania, Abortionist Kermit Gosnell was convicted of murder for the deaths of 3 infants and of involuntary manslaughter of Karnamaya Mongar.

Investigators of Gosnell’s clinic found dead babies decomposing in bags and freezer containers, hoses used for abortion procedures and doubled as a resuscitation tube and a flea infested cat that was allowed to roam the halls, urinating and defecating inside the facility. These conditions prevailed for 17 years without intervention.

Is there a Kermit Gosnell in Colorado?  No one really knows.  That’s why CCFL again supported the Women’s Health Protection Act, Sponsored by Representative Patrick Neville in 2016. 

CCFL was instrumental in the new draft version of the Women’s Health Protection Act, expected to be heard this legislative session and again sponsored by Representative Neville.

When abortion clinics are held accountable to safety standards comparable to those followed by nail salons and veterinary clinics, rather than comply, they will often close their doors. 

When abortion mills are closed lives are saved.  That’s why CCFL supports the Women’s Health Protection Act this year as well.

However, despite the compelling testimony garnered by Colorado Campaign for Life in 2016, the politicians owned by Planned Parenthood on the House Health Insurance and Environment Committee, killed the bill.

We will keep you updated as to the progress of the Women’s Health Protection Act.

Sincerely,

Christy Rodriquez
Executive Director
