Emergency Contraception

EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTION (EC) FOR SEXUAL-ASSAULT SURVIVORS

Colorado law requires that sexual-assault survivors receive information about emergency contraception (EC) in hospital emergency rooms.  The law requires Colorado hospitals to amend existing protocols to include informing sexual-assault survivors about the proper use and availability of EC as a means of preventing pregnancy.  

This law includes a refusal clause that allows any health-care professional to refuse to provide information about EC on the basis of religious or moral objections. 

Colo. Rev. Stat. § 25-3-110 (Enacted 2007).
