Colorado Amendment 67

On July 5th 2012, Heather Surovik was eight months pregnant with her son Brady when a drunk driver slammed into her car, harming both Heather and her mother and killing baby Brady. Because Colorado law doesn’t recognize Brady as a person, there was no prosecution for his tragic death. Heather Surovik started this Amendment initiative to honor the memory of her son, who like so many unborn babies had his life cut short by a violent criminal.

When Heather tried to change Colorado state law to protect babies like Brady, abortion advocates and their allies at the capitol testified that she had merely “lost a pregnancy” and shot down a bill that would have brought justice to babies killed during the commission of a crime. Immediately following those hearings, Heather filed “The Brady Amendment” which calls for fetal homicide laws to at last be applied to unborn victims of violence in Colorado.

The Brady Amendment reads:

In the interest of the protection of pregnant mothers and their unborn children from criminal offenses and negligent and wrongful acts, the words “person” and “child” in the Colorado Criminal Code and the Colorado Wrongful Death Act must include unborn human beings.

In November 2014, Colorado voters will have the opportunity to be a Voice for Brady by voting YES on 67!

Is the Brady Amendment Necessary?

In 2009, the Colorado Court of Appeals ruled that “this is an area that cries out for new legislation.” The court also pointed out that the Colorado “general assembly, unlike congress and most state legislatures, has precluded homicide prosecutions for killing the unborn.” The Brady Amendment is vitally important to expectant mothers and their unborn children in Colorado, serving as a deterrent to anyone who thinks that they can injure or kill an unborn child with minimal consequences.

Last summer, those same lawmakers who opposed Heather’s efforts for justice passed the dishonestly-titled “Crimes Against Pregnant Women Act.” Planned Parenthood and pro-abortion politicians who opposed Heather’s efforts to bring justice for Brady, have now passed a law that specifically reinforces that babies like Brady are not persons and eliminates criminal liabilities for abortionists who kill women during an abortion. Governor Hickenlooper signed this law, which says that drunk drivers like the one who is responsible for Brady’s death could have as little as a $2,000 fine. As Heather put it, “my son’s life was worth infinitely more than $2,000! I believe that this is one of the most offensive and deceptive bills to ever be passed in Colorado.”
