If Roe v. Wade is struck down, Colorado becomes island for protected abortion access

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Following the release of a Supreme Court draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade, local lawmakers and organizers are reacting to the possibility of others flocking to Colorado for access to abortions.

Access to abortion won't be limited in Colorado if Roe V. Wade is struck down the way access could be limited in surrounding states.

In April, the reproductive health equity act was signed into law in Colorado, largely protecting access to abortion access in the state.

The bill also prohibits state and local governments from denying or interfering with a person's decision to either use contraception, give birth, or have an abortion.

Colorado is already one of seven states that have no law against late-term abortions and have no state-imposed thresholds.
