In Colorado, the right to an abortion is now guaranteed under state law. The state’s Democratic governor signed the “Reproductive Health Equity Act” into law on Monday.

Colorado joins a handful of other states which are racing to enact laws like this as the U.S. Supreme Court considers a case that could overturn Roe V. Wade.

In response, Archbishop Samuel Aquila of Denver decried Colorado’s new law, writing in a tweet:

“Jesus forgive us! Tragic day for Colorado with the signing of hb22-1279, which allows for unrestricted abortion up to birth with zero rights for the unborn. A triumph for the culture of death & further erosion of the dignity of human life. We will continue to pray for the conversion of hearts.”
