Proposition 115 would put the long-arm of Colorado’s law in the middle of the complicated, tragic, and sometimes life and death decisions doctors help women with high-risk pregnancies make every day in this state. We hope voters refuse this ban on abortions after 22-weeks of gestation, which is approximately four months from delivery when the baby is about 11 inches long and weighs about 1 pound. The ban does include exceptions for when the life of the pregnant woman is at risk, however, it does not include any exceptions for when a woman is told her fetus will die in the womb or shortly after birth because of a severe birth defect or genetic abnormality.

Nevertheless, once they return, where will they live, and what will their new jobs be in the royal firm?
