.- Colorado Right to Life (CRLC) is recalling the anniversary of the passage of the nation's first abortion law, signed April 25, 1967, and mourning the loss of the millions of innocent babies killed in their mother's womb since then.

"Our nation is owed an apology for our state's role in starting the abortion holocaust," said Diane Hochevar, CRLC president. "As America begins to ponder the significant loss of love and talent our nation has discarded as medical waste, it should remember that when Colorado made the tragic error of allowing pre-born lives to be destroyed through abortion, we began a culture of death which has led to all human life being greatly devalued."

The organization applauds South Dakota for passing the first law restoring legal protection to pre-born babies and urges every state to follow suit.

CRLC claims that Terri Schiavo and others like her might not have been in jeopardy had Colorado rejected the taking of innocent life for cases of rape, incest and the mother's health back in 1967.

"When babies aren't safe in their mother's wombs, we are all in danger," added Leslie Hanks, CRLC’s vice president.
