At Family Policy Alliance, we often tell you about candidates who will vote to protect life. And indeed, we’re doing that now with mailers and digital ads in several key legislative districts around Colorado.
But this year, you have a chance to directly save lives with your vote in favor of Proposition 115.
Prop 115 fixes a horrible blemish on Colorado’s legal standing, not only in the nation but the world. Only a handful of countries allow abortions for any reason right up to the moment of birth – which is exactly what Colorado allows. We stand with the likes of Communist China and North Korea in our abysmal treatment of babies in the womb.
Specifically, Prop 115 bans abortions after 22 weeks unless the mother’s life is in immediate danger. Penalties for violation are applied to doctors who perform such abortions.
Vote YES on Prop 115 to save lives!
Other Huge Measures on Your Ballot
But Prop 115 isn’t the only critical issue on your ballot. Others will also have profound impact on the ability of Colorado families to thrive – or on the election process that undergirds our system of government. Here are a few recommendations.
Amendment C: Vote NO. Amendment C makes it easier for charities to start and expand gambling operations. Yes, these are not full-scale gambling operations, but it’s still a step in the wrong direction.
Amendment 77: Vote NO. This DOES involve full-scale gambling operations – allowing mountain towns (where most residents work for the casinos) to decide what’s allowed. Truly, this is putting the fox in charge of the henhouse.
Prop 113: Vote NO. This duplicitous scheme is backed by California money – and no wonder, as it would essentially hand Colorado’s votes for president over to California and a few other populous states. Why let the Los Angeles metro area – which outnumbers Colorado’s population by more than two-to-one – decide where Colorado’s electoral votes go?
Prop 116: Vote YES. Colorado’s government continues to grow – and out of that comes a host of liberal programs that harm families. One of the best ways to control government mischief is to limit its funding. Colorado families can put this modest tax cut to better use than our state’s politicians.
Prop 117: Vote YES. Colorado politicians have for years skirted our state’s Taxpayer Bill of Rights by raising fees. This holds them accountable by requiring that fees raising big dollars (more than $50 million in first five years) get voter approval.
