DENVER, May 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- After testifying against and defeating HB 1032, a bill to protect Colorado pregnant mothers like Heather Surovik, whose 8lb 2 oz son was killed by a drunk driver in July of 2012, Planned Parenthood has passed HB 1154 which bans criminal charges for women killed in abortion procedures and repeals Colorado criminal laws that have been on the books for years.

Jennifer Mason, spokesperson for Personhood Colorado, commented: "Planned Parenthood's backdoor attempt to repeal Colorado criminal laws has passed. No matter how negligent an abortionist may be, even if he is on par with Kermit Gosnell, he or she can no longer be criminally charged. Planned Parenthood has effectively created an abortion free-for-all in Colorado. Planned Parenthood's deceptive new bill has created an infinitely more dangerous environment for pregnant women."

HB 1154 eliminates criminal liabilities for abortionists who kill women during an abortion (by repealing 18-6-102), allows surgical and chemical abortions to be performed on minors without parental consent (by amending 13-22-105), legalizes the sale of chemical abortion drugs to minors (with the amendment of 13-22-105 and repeal of 18-6-102), and allows doctors to operate clinics much like Kermit Gosnell's by completely exempting them as long as they claim to be providing "medical services" (18-3.5-102).

The passage of this bill came just hours after a Delaware Planned Parenthood clinic shut down for being exposed for conditions similar to those of Kermit Gosnell's "house of horrors" in Philadelphia.

"Ironically, the part of this bill that was supposed to criminally charge perpetrators of crimes against pregnant women could enforce a $2,000 fine, which is close to the same price that Planned Parenthood charges for a second trimester abortion," noted Gualberto Garcia Jones, J.D., legal analyst for Personhood Colorado. "Heather Surovik, who lost her son Brady at the end of her pregnancy because of a drunk driver certainly believes that her son's life is worth more than $2,000. We stand with Heather, and with Brady, in denouncing HB 1154 and continuing to work to pass the Brady Amendment here in Colorado."
