“Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains would oppose any
Fetal Homicide measure, no matter how it might be written.”

Denver, 3-24-15 – Recently Michelle Wilkins, a young mom, anxiously awaiting the birth of her daughter was brutally attacked by a ruthless killer. Dynel Catrece Lane lured Michelle with a Craigslist ad for baby clothes. Ms. Lane cut open Michelle and ripped her baby girl from her womb. The smaller victim died. The mom was rushed to the hospital in critical condition but is recovering. Tragically she may not be allowed to seek justice for her unborn child because the state of Colorado refuses to recognize an unborn child as a person. Therefore Lane may not be prosecuted for the death of the baby. Ms. Wilkins is the eighth victim of this heinous legal flaw. See personhoodusa.com.
In 2012 Heather Surovik was 8 months pregnant when she was hit by a drunk driver. Her unborn baby boy, Brady, was 8 lbs 2 oz when he was killed. Because Colorado law didn’t consider Brady a person, the driver was never prosecuted. Heather was the spokesperson for the Brady Amendment designed to protect unborn children from predators. She worked tirelessly to ensure justice for babies murdered in the future. Undaunted she took on the abortion giant, Planned Parenthood, but Planned Parenthood won the last round. Heather is now actively reaching out to Michelle, offering support and fellowship.
Planned Parenthood unashamedly endangers the lives of all unborn children in the state to protect their lucrative abortion business. At a state committee hearing on fetal homicide, Kevin Paul, Planned Parenthood’s attorney, coldly stated that, “Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains would oppose any Fetal Homicide measure, no matter how it might be written.”
With their power and deceptive tactics Planned Parenthood has skillfully used the media to mislead the public. They try to vilify efforts to protect pregnant mothers from the unimaginable nightmare that Michelle Watkins is enduring now.
A study done by Isabelle Horon of the Maryland Department of Health that looked at pregnancy-associated deaths from 1993 to 1998 found that homicide was the leading cause of death in women who were pregnant. Homicides accounted for 20% of deaths, compared to 6% of deaths among non-pregnant women of reproductive age.
Colorado is in the midst of a moral dilemma. When the state accepts legal abortion, the unborn child cannot be viewed as a person.
The people of Colorado are horrified by the recent acts of Dynel Catrece Lane. We Coloradans are reaping what we’ve sown. In our attempt to free women from “unwanted pregnancies” our laws have threatened the lives of all unborn children, leaving their fate to those with criminal intent.
Will we continue to call personhood dangerous or is Colorado ready to identify the real problem. Planned Parenthood cunningly characterizes the personhood of a child in the womb as “dangerous”. At the same time they would have you believe that there is no such thing as fetal homicide and that the dismemberment of an unborn child is healthcare. They lie. Colorado has opened Pandora’s Box with horrific results.
We cannot turn back the hands of time to undo the horror that eight women in our state have experienced, We can though insure that in the future pregnant moms will have recourse and their precious children will be legally recognized by the law.
