POLICY ON ABORTIFACIENTS

Some means of birth control are truly contraceptive in nature; that is, they prevent the union of the sperm from the male with the ovum from the female. After the sperm unites with the ovum, however, a new human being comes into existence. Some means of birth control are abortifacient; that is, they destroy the new human being thus conceived. Colorado Right to Life Committee opposes all abortifacient means of birth control.
