Colorado Born Alive Infant Protection Act (HB 1146)
This law was last updated on Jun 28, 2016
HB 1146 would define “child”, “human being”, “individual”, and “person” as every infant human being who is born alive at any stage of development.
The bill defines “born alive” as, with respect to a human being, the complete expulsion or extraction from its mother a member of the species homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who after such expulsion or extraction breathes or has a beating heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord, or definite movement of voluntary muscles, regardless of whether the umbilical cord has been cut and regardless of whether the expulsion or extraction occurs as a result of natural or induced labor, cesarean section, or induced abortion.
Similar to HB 1112. which failed to pass in 2015.
