Earlier today, Colorado’s chapter of the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, or NARAL, tweeted a disturbing admission in response to a bill currently rattling around in the state house.

I read this over and and over again, hoping NARAL Colorado wasn’t advocating against penalties for those who end a pregnancy against a mother’s wishes. But there’s simply no way around it — NARAL is anti-personhood.

They went on to say:

And then kept digging:

SB-268 is rather straightforward. It defines a person, ” for the purposes of homicide and assault
offenses as a human being and includes an unborn child at every stage of gestation from conception until live birth.”

The bill doesn’t appear to trample on abortion “rights” as it clearly states, “For purposes of a prosecution of a homicide or assault offense, the bill does not apply to: An act committed by the mother of her unborn child; A medical procedure performed by a physician or other licensed medical professional at the request of a mother of her unborn child or the mother’s legal guardian; or The lawful dispensation or administration of lawfully
prescribed medication.”

According to the Denver Post:

Republican lawmakers introduced a bill in the closing weeks of the session to give prosecutors the ability to file murder charges in the death of an unborn child — a reaction to the March 18 attack on a Longmont woman whose 7-month-old fetus was cut from her womb and died.

The supporters say the measure is designed to provide “justice” for the fetus, not just the mother, and echoes fetal homicide legislation in nearly 40 states.

Senate President Bill Cadman, the lead sponsor, said he crafted the legislation to avoid the entrenched rhetoric on either side.

The bill, he said in a recent interview, is intended “to guarantee that a woman who wants to have a baby is protected” the same as a woman who chooses an abortion, “just like she is now.”

NARAL claims to serve in the best interest of women’s rights, but rejects protections for unborn women. As statist ideology lurches even further left, their ability to mask ulterior motives weakens.

A few years ago, Planned Parenthood was asked what their physicians would do if a baby was born alive, and breathing.

There is no way the pro-abort crowd can honestly say they’re not arguing for the right to murder.
