Current Pro-Life Legislation Updates
Simplifying Requirements For New Birth Certificate
On July 13, 2020, Governor Polis signed into law SB 20-166. This bill allows a minor of any age to change the sex on their birth certificate with parental consent. The bill requires a signed statement by a medical provider or a mental health professional who is in good standing in the state of Colorado, stating that: THE SEX DESIGNATION ON THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE DOES NOT ALIGN WITH THE MINOR’S GENDER IDENTITY. THIS SUBSECTION (3)(b)(II) DOES NOT REQUIRE A MINOR TO UNDERGO ANY SPECIFIC SURGERY, TREATMENT, CLINICAL CARE, OR BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CARE.
This birth certificate supersedes the original and “MUST NOT BE MARKED AS AMENDED OR INDICATE ANY OTHER MANNER THAT GENDER DESIGNATION OR NAME ON THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE HAS BEEN CHANGED.”
This bill also allows for minors to change the sex on their driver’s licenses and their state issued I.D. cards.
