Recap of 2002 Colorado Born Alive Infant Protection Act


By Tom Longua

In the railroad industry, a "gandy dancer" is laborer who works on a section gang, laying track. Indeed, some of us remember a famous song that began, "A gandy dancer is a railroad man; his work is never done."

Just so. On May 3, in the Health, Environment, Children and Families committee of the Colorado Senate, the gandy dancers were busy railroading HB 1317, the "Born Alive Infant Protection Act" that had earlier passed the House with a vote of 43-19.

Public Leaflet Distribution

Distribution of Political Material

The distribution of political material is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. Thus, a person may freely distribute political flyers on public sidewalks and streets as long as traffic is not disrupted.

In addition, political flyers may be distributed on private property as long as that private property has been opened to the general public for its use. Thus, leafleting may take place in shopping center parking lots and sidewalks, when this property is open for public use.

Candidate Questionnaire

Here are questions you may want to ask candidates for public office. Colorado Right to Life and Citizens for Responsible Government have used these or similar questions in the past. We generally ask these questions of all candidates, of any party, who are listed by the Colorado Secretary of State for federal or statewide elective office.
