The ballot campaign to create universal health care in Colorado drew an unlikely and prominent opponent this week: NARAL ProChoice Colorado, one of the state’s leading abortion rights groups.
The organization — more accustomed to fighting to expand health care services — is opposing Amendment 69 because it worries that the measure could limit access to abortion care.
Under NARAL’s legal interpretation, a constitutional ban on using “public funds” for abortion approved by voters in 1984 would prohibit Colorado Care from covering the procedure because it would be a political subdivision of the state.
“While we strongly support the goal of improved healthcare for all Coloradans, and many of our members individually support the idea of universal health care, Amendment 69 in not providing guarantees to abortion access means it is not truly universal,” the NARAL Colorado board of directors wrote in a statement after reaching its decision Wednesday evening.
ColoradoCareYES, the group behind Amendment 69, disputes NARAL Colorado’s legal interpretation.
Ralph Ogden, the group’s attorney, argues in a memorandum that if the amendment is approved by voters in November, it would supersede prior amendments — including the 1984 ban on publicly funded abortion services in Article V, section 50 of the Colorado Constitution.
“The general rule is that where an apparent conflict exists between two statutes, the courts must attempt to harmonize them to effectuate the intent of the general assembly,” the memo reads.

Colorado U. S. Senate candidate Darryl Glenn responded to the Orlando nightclub attack with a seemingly simple solution: neighborhood watch.
The Republican, a 13-year local elected official in Colorado Springs, argued that neighbors are the first line of defense to report suspicious behavior to authorities, even though it’s not clear that this would have prevented Orlando shooter Omar Mateen.
He took his approach one step further earlier this week at a campaign event, suggesting the need to “vet” neighbors who are acting suspicious.
“This era of political correctness out there needs to go,” he started in a speech at an event featuring Sen.
