Summary

The bill defines a person to include an unborn child at all stages
of gestation, from fertilization to natural death, as it relates to a private
right of action and current homicide and assault provisions.
The bill declares that any existing state law relating to prenatal
homicide or regulating abortion or abortion facilities is superseded to the
extent it conflicts or is inconsistent with the provisions of the bill. The bill
requires the state to enforce homicide and assault provisions without
regard to the opinion of the United States supreme court in Roe v. Wade

and other supreme court decisions, past and future.
The bill authorizes the state to disregard any federal court decision
that purports to enjoin or void this requirement and subjects a Colorado
judge to impeachment or removal if the judge purports to enjoin, stay,
overrule, or void the requirement.
