TO HAVE YOUR VOICE HEARD ON ABORTION, GO HERE TO PROTECT THE UNBORN.
During a radio interview, Due Date Too Late spokesperson Lauren Castillo explained that the commitment to their cause was volunteer-driven.
"It was just a huge movement that had a ton of momentum behind it," Castillo said. "It was by and large 99 percent of a volunteer effort which was incredible and has not been done before in our state. It's indicative of the amount of people who are committed to protecting these pre-born lives from late-term abortion."
In a press release, the group explained that they encountered difficulties obtaining the required signatures due to the shelter-in-place order.
"Circulating petitions in a very challenging COVID-19 environment, Due Date Too Late volunteers exceeded all expectations for signatures gathered as Democrat and Unaffiliated voters joined to add thousands of signatures in a truly bipartisan effort."
Colorado is one of several states without time limits on when women can get an abortion.
