Colorado Governor Jared Polis signed a law Monday affirming a woman’s reproductive rights in the state should the U.S. Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade.

The Reproductive Health Equity Act, introduced in the wake of restrictive laws in Texas and other states, ensures a “right to use or refuse contraception or to continue a pregnancy and give birth or to have an abortion.”
