Colorado Democrats delay vote on abortion to avoid public defeat

    Coloradoan: “Colorado Democrats launched an election-year showdown over abortion rights, then delayed their own proposal Tuesday to avoid a public defeat. The Senate was scheduled to debate a bill to guarantee that state or local policies won’t interfere with reproductive decisions such as abortion and contraception. Sponsored by Democrats, the proposal was pitched by backers as a safeguard against future attempts to chip away at reproductive rights.” | Text of the bill is here.

Bill to slow Colorado’s adoption of Common Core dies in committee

    The Denver Post: “The Senate education committee Thursday night rejected a bill that would slam the brakes on the Colorado Academic Standards, including the Common Core and the testing adopted with it, after six hours of passionate pleas from both sides to do right by students. Senate Bill 136, sponsored by Fort Collins Republican Vicki Marble, would have delayed testing for a year while an independent task force examined both the standards and a cost-analysis of implementation.”

    Virtue Online: Phillips’s lead lawyer is Nicolle Martin, who is representing him pro bono as part of the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a network of over 2,000 Christian attorneys nationwide who defend people in their local communities when their religious liberties are violated . . . According to Phillip’s lawyer, Nicolle Martin, “American citizens should not have to live in fear of a prison sentence merely for disagreeing with the government’s opinion. All Americans should remain free to honor God in our lives and in our work. The government has no business threatening Americans with jail time for simply exercising their constitutionally-protected freedoms of religion and speech. Every American, whatever you think about this issue, should fear a government that ignores the First Amendment in order to exercise this kind of power over its citizens.”
