DENVER, Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Brady Ministries will hold a news conference at 2:00 p.m. MDT on Monday, September 30 to announce the results of their petition drive and plans to move forward.
On July 5, 2012, Longmont resident Heather Surovik was eight months pregnant when a repeat drunk driver slammed into her car. Although Heather survived, her unborn son Brady did not. Because Colorado does not recognize Brady as a person, there was no prosecution for his tragic death. Brady was eight pounds, two ounces.
To honor her son, Heather Surovik has initiated the Brady petition to recognize in law that Brady was a person deserving of protection. In the interest of the protection of pregnant mothers and their unborn children from criminal offenses and negligent and wrongful acts, the words "person" and "child" in the Colorado Criminal Code and the Colorado Wrongful Death Act must include unborn human beings.
