Personhood USA: Press Conference response to HB 1032 and announcement of new initiative Monday

Jan 25, 2013, 19:50 ET from Personhood USA

DENVER, Jan. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following the hearing of HB 1032, Personhood USA and Personhood Colorado will hold a press conference on Monday to announce plans for a new effort to protect Colorado babies and their parents.

In recent years, multiple cases of harm to women and their unborn babies have gone unrecognized and unprosecuted due to current loopholes in Colorado law.  Heather Surovik, victim of a drunk driving accident who lost her son Brady as she was preparing for delivery, will be testifying and speaking at the press conference. 

Colorado law currently disallows prosecution for crimes against children in the womb, allowing drunk drivers and perpetrators of violent crime against pregnant women to avoid criminal charges when found guilty of harming or killing children who have not yet been born. As seen in the recent malpractice case involving Catholic Health Initiatives, there is often no recourse for parents of unborn babies harmed or killed due to negligence or medical malpractice.

Personhood Colorado intends to address Catholic Health Initiatives' anti-life legal defense, and to announce plans for a new endeavor to combat this and other similar problems in Colorado law.

Who: Personhood Colorado and Heather Surovik  
What: Press conference to announce new project in defense of human life   
Where: Denver Capitol West   
When: 3:15pm, or immediately following the hearing of HB 1032.
