Catholics for Choice stood with an interfaith coalition in Colorado to defeat Proposition 115 which sought to effectively ban abortions in Colorado later in pregnancy. We are proud to have stood with all of the organizers to defeat this measure and to lift up the voices of pro-choice Catholics who opposed it. Catholics for Choice believes that all people should have the time they need to make decisions for their own reproductive health. We fight to protect the moral agency of those who have to make what is often a heart-breaking decision to get an abortion later in pregnancy.
Our Catholic faith teaches us we should be free to exercise our conscience, especially when it comes to reproductive health care. In radio ads in Spanish and English, Catholics like America and Yadira called on their fellow Coloradans to respect the rights of all people who need abortion and to give them the time they need to make moral decisions. You can hear the radio ads sharing their stories and see the digital ads we ran across the state below.
Thank you – and congratulations – to all Coloradans who made it clear that compassion and choice are integral parts of their moral values.
