A Republican proposal to ban abortions in Colorado and make it a crime to perform them failed in a Democrat-controlled committee.
One Republican lawmaker joined six Democrats on the committee to defeat the bill Tuesday on a 7-4 vote. Republican Rep. Kathleen Conti called the measure "too extreme."
The legislation would have banned abortions in Colorado and make it a class 3 felony to perform them.
The bill would have exempted cases where a doctor performed an abortion to prevent the death of the mother and when an unborn child died accidentally during medical treatment.
