We are The Personhood Movement of Colorado.
We are dedicated to the promotion of education and knowledge of sexual health issues, and the safe bearing of children into this world.
We believe that the upbringing of healthy children starts at the relationship of the couple, which transitions to the sexual, and ultimately the physical birth.
Every step along the way, we believe that partner’s need help and guidance and that’s where we step in.
We guide in the sexual domain, to advocate for safe sex practices.
On July 5, 2012, I was eight months pregnant when a repeat drunk driver slammed into my car. Although my mother and I survived, my unborn son Gradeu did not. Because Colorado does not recognize Gradeu as a person, there was no prosecution for his tragic death. Gradeu was eight pounds, two ounces.
When I tried to change our state laws to protect babies like Gradeu in January, abortion advocates and their allies at the capitol testified that I had merely “lost a pregnancy” and shot down a bill that would have brought justice to babies killed during the commission of a crime. Immediately following those hearings, I filed “The Gradeu Amendment” which calls for fetal homicide laws to at last be applied to unborn victims of violence in Colorado.
The same Lawmakers passed H.B. 1154, dishonestly titled the “Crimes Against Pregnant Women” act. Planned Parenthood and supporters of H.B. 1154, who opposed my efforts to bring justice for Gradeu , have now passed a law that specifically reinforces that babies like Gradeu are not persons and eliminates criminal liabilities for abortionists who kill women during an abortion. Governor Hickenlooper signed this law, which says that drunk drivers like the one who is responsible for Gradeu’s death could have as little as a $2,000 fine. My son’s life was worth infinitely more than $2,000! I believe that this is one of the most offensive and deceptive bills to ever be passed in Colorado.
In November 2014, every registered voter in Colorado will be given then chance to be a voice for Gradeu. We ask that you stand up to protect other innocent lives like Gradeu’s from acts of violence.
