Trump Plan to Deny Health Coverage for Contraception

Trump Plan to Deny Health Coverage for Contraception

Miraculously, Wilkins, who had been 34 weeks pregnant, survived the physical assault. This was an unfathomable act of cruelty. However, justice will not be achieved by Colorado legislators using it as grounds for passing new feticide laws that will actually make pregnant women vulnerable to arrest and punishment. Dynel Lane, the woman accused of attacking Wilkins, has been charged with numerous crimes, including the attempted murder of Wilkins and first-degree unlawful termination of a pregnancy under Colorado’s Crimes Against Pregnant Women Act. The Colorado legislature carefully crafted this law in 2013 to...
