Public Leaflet Distribution

Distribution of Political Material

The distribution of political material is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. Thus, a person may freely distribute political flyers on public sidewalks and streets as long as traffic is not disrupted.

In addition, political flyers may be distributed on private property as long as that private property has been opened to the general public for its use. Thus, leafleting may take place in shopping center parking lots and sidewalks, when this property is open for public use.

We generally ask these questions of all candidates, of any party, who are listed by the Colorado Secretary of State for federal or statewide elective office.

Part of that pretense is that they often feign acceptance of "reasonable" laws that might limit the number of abortions -- as long as such measures leave room for exceptions for the woman's "health"

What is "Pro-life Legislation"?

For over a hundred years, abortion had been a crime in the statutes of all states and territories of the United States. But for various reasons, especially the moral decline of society, abortion was decriminalized in recent generations -- first in Colorado in 1967, then in a handful of other states the next few years, and finally in the whole country with the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision on January 22, 1973.
