What you need to know about abortion rights in Colorado

Jose Luis Magana
Abortion rights advocates demonstrate in front of the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2021, in Washington, as the court hears arguments in a case from Mississippi, where a 2018 law would ban abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, well before viability.

Extensive legal challenges are playing out over abortion access on a national level, and Colorado lawmakers may consider a bill this session that would help secure reproductive rights in the state. For more on the Reproductive Health Equity Act, and the state of abortion access in Colorado, we speak with Dusti Gurule, president and CEO of Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights.

As a producer for Colorado Edition, I pitch segment ideas, pre-interview guests, craft scripts and cut audio. I also write tweets, build web posts and occasionally host.
As host of KUNC's Colorado Edition, I work closely with our producers and reporters to bring context and diverse perspectives to the important issues of the day. And because life is best when it's a balance of work and play, I love finding stories that highlight culture, music, the outdoors, and anything that makes Colorado such a great place to live.
