Surrogate Motherhood

POLICY ON SURROGATE MOTHERHOOD

WHEREAS, Present-day medical technology has made possible the soliciting of wombs-for-hire, which has been given the name "surrogate motherhood"; and

WHEREAS, This practice is an extension of the attitude that prevails in the practice of induced abortion, which is to treat the unborn child as a commodity and the mother as an object to be used to satisfy the desires of others; and

Stem Cells – What’s the issue?

Part 1 ~ What are "stem cells"?

Stem cells serve as a sort of repair system for the body. They can theoretically divide without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person or animal is still alive. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell. You have to have a human being before you can get human stem cells.

Public Funding

PUBLIC POLICY STATEMENT ON FUNDING FOR ABORTION

COLORADO RIGHT TO LIFE COMMITTEE (CRLC) is on record as a matter of public policy as being opposed to all public funding of abortions.

While we oppose all public funding of abortion, we recognize that it may not be possible to end all such funding at one time. Therefore, we will support the strongest measures available to restrict or eliminate public funding of abortion. However, we reserve the right to oppose any measure which does not significantly address the problem.

Partial Birth Abortion

Partial-Birth Abortions

Partial-Birth Abortion unnecessary

"Never is the partial-birth procedure necessary. Not for hydrocephaly..., not for polyhydramnios...and not for trisomy...in no case is it necessary to partially deliver an infant through the vagina and then kill the infant."

-Physicians Ad Hoc Coalition for Truth, Wall Street Journal, Sept. 19, 1996

Partial-Birth Abortion a danger to women

Other Issues

Policy on "Other Issues"

Colorado Right to Life Committee is a "single-issue" organization, opposing the deliberate killing or dehumanization of innocent human beings. At the time of CRLC's founding, this included opposition to abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, and involuntary sterilization. More recently, it has also included opposition to such practices as embryonic stem cell research and cloning.

CRLC does not take a position on other issues, although individuals in CRLC often are involved on one side or another of other issues.
